A stunning image Lillian, Pin sharp focusing, wonderfully composed, and the light shimmering through the iridescent plumage is simply quite magical.

There have been a number of Kingfisher shots on this week Lillian and so I was pleased that when I decided to award this one, it turned out to be yours. I decided that I would give GEA's judged only by the image and not by person, so no favouritism, just well earned.
