I do hope i'm not boring you all with the KF uploads,I know the perch is the same but it's the only one he has landed on so far this year ! The shots have been very limited,so i'm making the most of it..........!!

Here is another one & a personal favourite of mine,I hope you like it too.
Many thanks to Richard (mossyoak) for the constructive critisism on the previous upload,all points taken on board & thanks for the mod Smile

A dazzler from the eye to the tones in the bg Dean. This in portrait is a top shelf presentation of a superb bird and I would go out on a limb to say contender for POTW, it's up there with the best.
I'll start it with my UA for dedication and skill

Absolutely stunning, pin sharp, fantastic colours - is this your pet? you have an awful lot of images of this fellow, I'd be lucky to even see one in the wild from a mile away, no chance of taking any photos of any... Smile Tracey
