WOW!.... bring it on Steve, how could we ever get fed up with shots like this, the perch the pose, the angle and the photography, all superb and well worth all the user awards it's earned. (If I hadn't already given mine away for this week, there would be another trophy up there with the others) Excellent shot of the magnificent kingfisher.
