she had been making for the next generation with Arthur...well done Anna

My thanks to everyone for your comments and awards
Very grateful to you

hoping to get back to the river

Superb set of images, Lillian. Perfectly presented. Top class.
My fave is v3 as it captures colours, sense of movement and that gobbled up fish perfectly. GrinGrin

V 1 is a perfect crisp capture, but what blurring there is in V 2 and 3 just conveys the activity of the bird with it's catch, and in my opinion (for what it's worth) rather enhances the shots........certainly does not detract.
I'd be delighted if any one of these three were my own, Lillian.

Such a stunning bird and you see lots of them!

Three images to aspire to here, Lillian.
The movement you have captured in V2 and V3 is superb.
I hope you feel better soon.

Three wonderful photos once again from you Lillian, I love them all but V3 is superb. The colours in the kingfisher are simply stunning.

Quote:you set the bar at a breathless level

Well put, and I couldn't agree more.

Great to see the fish-whacking action in Vs 2 and 3, but of course V1 is the winner.

This little one is beautiful. Nice trio of picture, my favourite being v3 - with lots of action and still very sharp in places where this little body was still.
