Hi everyone, I've been otherwise occupied for a while with other work plus an injury, but thought it was about time I made an appearance. Thanks to all who sent me PMs regarding my welfare, they were much appreciated.
Anyway here's a Kingfisher shot in our local park (that there park). Hope you like it.
Pete.

Nice to see you back on here Pete, and with this fine image of a KF too, it is something I look for down the local river and pond but never get to see - even though they are there, just never at the right place and time

you have really got this spot on

An excellent piece of natural history work viewed here Pete. The tree branch running along the bottom of the shot with the subject sitting on a powerful right hand third with a catch-light in the eye - works a treat. Welcome back.
