Sitting Pretty

By Lillian  
This is Arthur on the lookout and protecting his "area"
with the river and reeds as background

This has to be one of my favourite poses from a Kingfisher...with the tail up!

Yesterday...What a day of excitement, a Highly commended, a GEA and 14 User Awards
I thank you all and am so pleased that everyone thought that my image of Guiney was worthy

Being in the quiet by the river watching these birds is as magical as anyone could wish for
anyone wishing to know more about these birds, Alan (sydney2) has a Kingfisher group going

Off to Portsmouth to meetup again with Lynne Joyce today

Again my thanks
