A you say she seems to be pretty bossy! Why does this scenario have a ring of familiarity with me, Lillian.
I have yet to see a kingfisher, never mind capture one on camera, but two! Now that takes some doing, so full marks tom you for that alone, and extra points for your perfect timing.

What can I say..huge thank you to Mike (Hasslebladuk) and Sandy (Daisymaye) for your User Awards
Over whelmed here, and must add with the help I had and going in all weathers even snow, to try
to begin to understand these very small and 'fast flashes of electric blue' birds..called Kingfishers!
I thank you all, and yes, I feel proud this is mine
