Kingfisher 2

By FeatherFriend
Hi all, another shot from a recent visit to Upton Warren, it's a large crop so the chest detail isn't quite as I would have liked. Note to myself: Must ask the wardens to move the hide another 10 yards closer to the perches Wink
Many thanks for taking time out to view and comment on my Scottish Wildcat and a special thank you to Ann (pluckyfilly) for the UA and Julia (NaturesHaven) for the GEA, really appreciated,

Another beauty

Nice shot with lovely colours.
Considering this is a large crop, the feather detail is OK and a nice eye also.
