Hi Alan,

I have no idea why you have put this into the critique gallery especially as you haven't added a description to tell us, the shot is without fault as far as I can see.
If this were mine I would have it printed as big as possible and have it hung on my wall.

Many thanks for your comments. Like last year with my Preening & Defending territory photos, I am thinking of putting this in competition,
I am not a good judge of my own pictures and find comments helpful.

Absolutely splendid, Alan: what a delightful moment to capture and so immaculately at that. As others have said, I don't think this could be improved in any way.

I wonder just how long you waited to get this perfect capture. To get a picture of a kingfisher in such clarity is always amazing, but a pair ... it's fabulous.

Thank you ah64d
I photograph the kingfishers breeding every spring.and update my equipment every year to try and improve my photographs.
The above photo is now on exhibition during January 2013 in Salisbury with the Southern photographic federation.
