In the harsh sunlight, just been fishing!

Reeds and water as backdrop
Spent a magical day yesterday watching and photographing Kingfishers.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment, as always very much appreciated
Had a feeling this was not from your bedroom window Lillian !!
Talking of which,you are up late tonight are you not ?
A well coloured and detailed shot.
No Mick, went off to the river today
and been processing the photos as unable to sleep
The lighting does seem harsh, Lillian, but you have coped very well with it, getting a fine crisp capture of the k/f and it's capture.
Wonderful rich but natural colours.
Now this is special, sharp and to the point, is he going to EAT those fins?
A beautiful shot Lillian. Well done.
Great details and colours. There's even the tiniest starburst showing just above the little fish on your Kingfisher's bill, doubtless thanks to the strong sunlight and a nice little bonus! Cracking shot.
As you'll see, I can't sleep either!

It's all been said what can I add? It's a shame I gave my award before I saw this shot.
I'll try to remember to give it tomorrow.
I think some credit should go to Guinevere. She was badly attacked by Arthur on Sunday,
was beaten into the river, He tore out some of her feathers and chased her off.
The fact that this courageous little mum, barely a year old had the guts to return for Lillian to take her photo is remarkable.
This photo would not have been possible Without the help of Guiney returning to the perch in front of Lillian with a fish.
I have with my friend Malc been on tender hooks since Sunday hoping she had survived her ordeal. I had tears of Joy when Lillian took this photo, and phoned Malc with the good news.
It's all been said Lilian. Your best yet
What more can I say? Magical day and a magical image as well.
Wow now this has to be the best shot you have done i am now really jealous . and you deserve all the Awards . and one from me
W O N D E R F U L.

Absolute stunner Lillian.
A well-deserved HC , GE and a plethora of UA’s, well done.
An absolutely top-notch image, Lillian! Superb!
Congrats on the awards Lillian, very well deserved,
I know you will think I'm being silly but I sort of get that feeling you might just get a few awards for this shot! lol. and if I had not just given mine away you would have got another one!, lovely shot awards well deserved best regards Leon.
Fifteen UAs has to be a record, Lillian, and an HC to top them up. Wow, you must be pleased.
I was interested to read what Sydney2 said, how awful!
Amazing shot, you really deserved every award.
Must be a good un Lillian , no one has been on to tell you what you did wrong a cracker .
Fine work Lillian ...Bill
Pure class Lillian, this one fully deserves all the accolades it has received
This fish is like cod ... Am I right, Lillian? Excellent photo!
I think you're giving Mr. Fisher some serious competition with this, Lillian.
Unable to give a gold star, but would if I could!
They dont come much better than this ...stunning capture.
