The beautiful Anna

By AlanWillis    
Although I am not 100% sure, I think Anna has 9 or 10 babies.
In 10 minutes today Anna caught and took into her nest 9 fish.
The Hampshire kingfishers, in the previous 6 years, have nearly always had 7 young.
If the first brood this year is 9 it would be wonderful.
I of course will not know until the offspring fledge.

Many thanks for kind comments & awards.
I took this using manual focus, I concentrated on the kingfishers eye, and made sure the beak was in focus right to the tip.
