Hi Alan,

I have no idea why you have put this into the critique gallery especially as you haven't added a description to tell us, the shot is without fault as far as I can see.
If this were mine I would have it printed as big as possible and have it hung on my wall.

Many thanks for your comments. Like last year with my Preening & Defending territory photos, I am thinking of putting this in competition,
I am not a good judge of my own pictures and find comments helpful.

Absolutely splendid, Alan: what a delightful moment to capture and so immaculately at that. As others have said, I don't think this could be improved in any way.

I wonder just how long you waited to get this perfect capture. To get a picture of a kingfisher in such clarity is always amazing, but a pair ... it's fabulous.
