When's Breakfast?

By IanA  
Mum had just delivered a nice juicy worm which the chick had devoured instantly, having been given it through the hole. Then the chick stuck it's head out as if to say "Is that all?"
Taken around 7am this morning. Thanks for looking.

Lol, that's a tight fit for the baby - hadn't noticed it at first. Great shot and gave me a smile.

What an amazing portfolio. I love the way babe is looking out of the tree. I have to say your Kingfisher shots are fantastic, I would love to see one of these birds and to be able to get a shot of one would be incredible. Vanda
