She has her breakfast!

By Lillian  
Early morning light as the sun was just arriving
this female Kingfisher arrived in front of me with her fish

This is where I went to dry off after the Water Rail soaking!

in my mind well worth it, the light was amazing, combined with the icy conditions

Have other images where she is facing me, but for me
the colours on her back are just so magical, as she spies me there as well

Take care... and stay warm
Lillian

An excellent capture Lillian.
Beautiful capture I can only imagine the patience and time that went into it. Takes me to childhood around Worcestershire watching them around the streams, lakes and river Severn.
