Queen of the River

By Lillian  
Now what is that you are asking?? more fish...surely not! AND it is raining!

This adorable female Kingfisher sat and posed for us for a considerable time,
while her partner sat on the eggs..so both showed up for their photo session many times

Thank you for the comments on the Golden Eagle..appreciated so much

Now to catch up on your images

Thanks Alan..another great day...need a week just to process the images now

Lillian

Great pose and background
But I have more votes than you. LOL

I thought at first your title was Queen of the Rovers,Lillian
and Annie Walker was returning too Coronation Street.
Or even perhaps Roy of the Rovers was not quite the manly footballer I was led to believe !!
Super shot.

What a super shot Lillian. I do not have one image of a kingfisher. It's a pity because I love them.

We are partially packed and I expect the house will be ours two weeks tomorrow. As yes I have not got a removal man booked... Why will people not answer there phones or return calls. It is so frustrating.

I suppose the real Queen of the river sadly now only lives in a book,
and Guinevere is the new Queen.

I've always wanted to bag a kingfisher.
Never achieved it yet.
Lovely image and I love your observations
on the bird's movements also.
So much to learn.
