14 visits to my set up, Lillian are starting to bear fruit.
A wonderful photograph of Arthur.
Your' kingfisher photography has moved up a notch.
In fact I think this is your' best to date.
Quills at the rear of Arthurs eye will soon be feathers.
He will then be so handsome.

I wonder if Arthur knows what a star he is.
I wouldn't know one kingfisher from another, but this one has deservedly been featured a lot by your tutorSmile, so maybe I should have recognised him.

Oh yes, Arthur is featured all over
and if you look at his beak Pamela, there is a gap where it never meets like other beaks
well when he has not got a fish in it!!WinkBlush
Thank you all so much for your awards and lovely comments
so very much appreciated and Nathan for the GEA.
thanks to Alan's extra help to get this right

Hi Lillian.........When I commented yesterday I had used my award, which I would have instantly given, but this shot is so good (and I have checked every upload since, to the present moment) and am happy to say that it is still the far. I do feel a little as though I am jumping on the bandwagon after all your so well deserved awards, but it proves my earlier comment to be spot on.
A little belated but happy to give my award.
