Amazing! Your images just get better and better. That's such a sad expression on the fish's face but clearly a catch to be proud of by the Kingfisher, once how to swallow that mouthful is worked out!

Lovely shot of Guinevere, Lillian. Arthur has now finished his moult, Guiney will look even more beautiful when she catches him up.
Many thanks for posting your photos, on my London Life and kingfisher of Europe, groups.

I am always delighted when others post excellent kingfisher shots.
Other wise I would not share my passion with so many friends.
My agenda is different to most, which enables me to respect all who put in the time to capture them.

I see all these kingfishers with fish in their mouth for dinner...how come you never capture one with chips in its mouth? You can't have the fish without the chips. Whatever next!Wink

Cracking image, Lillian.
