Would have loved to have had a go at post processing the original
It took me two years practise to get shots like this, and you do it straight away, WOW
Cracking shot, superb colour and sharpness.
That has to be one of the 'best User Awards' Alan from a expert!!
I thank you so much, and maybe one day I will get a shot half as good as yours
But I think I will be dreaming a long time!
Thank you so much

For a first shot of a kingfisher you have done remarkably well, Lillian: I have yet to see one, never mind capture it with my lens.

Thank you all for your comments..I am truely amazed..it really was the most
exciting day! and still it goes on..
Wonderful Lillian. Beautiful colour and lovely detail. I would love to see one let alone get a shot of it.
I got so excited seeing the squirrel the other day, and the otters were great although too far away to get a shot.
Congrats Lillian on your first kingfisher it is a lovely shot and a great experience
I'd settle for just seeing one of these wonderful little birds. Congratulations on not just doing that but capturing such a lovely 1st image too. Well done on those awards, including that of the great expert on the subject!
Supurb image Lillian,such beautiful colours,I have never seen one, so a big congratulations.Well done..Lin
An absolute beauty Lillian. Congrats on breaking your duck !!!!!
Another beauty, lovely colour.
Love the blue tones here Lillian.
And congrats' on your awards !!
Really well done Lillian, the first is always rather special, congrats on the awards,
Congratulations, Lillian. A stunning image. Beautiful colour and brilliant details. Beautifully captured.
Take care, Pauline
Absolutely stunning, Lillian, and well worthy of the awards, wouldn't be surprised if there were more to come. Carol
I can still remember my first Lillian it stays with you.
This is a great Kingy with the lines down the back and slight turn of head. Exposed on the whites very nicely and very good detail.
Tip to bring the eye out is select it and then adjust highlights to just lift it when in shadow from the turn of head.
Congratulations. I'm told it becomes adictive .
Brilliant Lillian, great to get the first.
Superb capture Lillian - this first shot will always be the special one Carole
never seen one Lillian far less try to capture it you have done very well here the detail is excellent his colours are wonderful a real joy to view
Hi Lillian very well captured excellent, regards gray.

Nice capture Lillian.
Very well deserved UAs Lillian. You have captured those terrific colours so well in this image. Well done on losing your (kingfisher) virginity
