Kingfisher 2

By Marian
The Kingfisher landed twice the other day. Did he stay long?...no, he was soon off, but I did see him catch a fish, and have a picture of that as well. This stick he landed on was slightly closer to the hide, so it made it better for focusing and cropping.

Really pleased with all the comments and clicks on my last Kingfisher, which meant I nearly equalled by best image on the site this year - so thank you.

Will get around to looking at your work this evening, but for now I must work.

EDIT: THANKS FOR THE AWARD DAVE - That was a wonderful surprise.
EDIT: THANKS FOR THE 70 VOTES on the last two images, making them my best on EZP.

I think this is even better than your last upload Marian, very nice detail and colours indeed, however perhaps a little extra room in front of him would have helped with the composition.

Another fantastic shot Marian. (Thanks for the tip. We know whereabouts they go locally, but for the last couple of year there's been no sitings of them in our area. Hopefully they might return next year.)
