The Kingfisher ( alcedo atthis )
My apologies to Mr Walton for making use of the title of his book but it did seem to me to be the perfect title for this little bird also. He really is superb fisherman and rarely does he/she come up empty handed ( beaked ?? ) after making one of his characteristic dives into the water.
I hope to continue to see them for a long time to come, and that you will have time to view the large version of this beautiful little bird.
As always my grateful thanks to all who viewed/commented/voted on the relative of this in the previous posting and my particular thanks to Richard ( Mossy Oak ) for his User Award.
