Walk This Way

By FeatherFriend
Hi all, 'Walk This Way' isn't what Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of the American hard rock band 'Aerosmith' had in mind when they wrote the song in 1975 but I couldn't think of a more suitable title Wink Tongue
Taken at Slimbridge recently and posted as a 'fun shot', not intended for the 'purists' as it's a captive bird but it's actually performing some sort of ritual with it's partner which is not in view and extremely amusing to watch.
Many thanks for taking time out to view and comment on my Kingfisher and a special thank you to Lillian, Big_Beavis, Kban, tommyld, and Glyn1 for the User Awards, very much appreciated as always.

You could not have asked for a better 'pose' from this bird, stepping out and displaying so well.

Excellent timing and wonderful detail Geoff - these are not easy to capture and their colour doesn't help either! You have managed it all brilliantly! Lou
