Now what did I tell you.... behave yourself

And in V2 He was off again, she really is being bossy and making herself heard (another record image)

So hard to capture together as very fast moving and yesterday the light was poor.. yes, my excuse but I at least tried
so what, it is such a Magical Time just to be there, watch hear and try to photograph

Thank You all for those wonderful comments and votes on yesterdays Kingfisher...appreciated so much

A you say she seems to be pretty bossy! Why does this scenario have a ring of familiarity with me, Lillian.
I have yet to see a kingfisher, never mind capture one on camera, but two! Now that takes some doing, so full marks tom you for that alone, and extra points for your perfect timing.

Over whelmed here, and must add with the help I had and going in all weathers even snow, to try
to begin to understand these very small and 'fast flashes of electric blue' birds..called Kingfishers!
I thank you all, and yes, I feel proud this is mine
