As much as I adore Kingfisher's, such stunning birds, I can't help but feel so sorry for the minnow here in this image, who seems, by the look on it's face, resigned itself to its fate.
View it large to see what I mean.

Many thanks for looking.

Phil

Think of it this way Phil, of the Kingfisher hadn't got it, a Perch or a Jack Pike would have Smile Excellent capture once again matey.
