This was taken at some distance away min 25 metres my exif data say 32 m , I like the setting and the overall shot, I have many close ups of kingfishers ,so I have no need to crop this to death just to show the kingfisher, what are your thoughts ? thanks Trevor

Stunning, a wonderful capture, capturing this stunning Kingfisher in its own environment and not crammed into a restrictive box...

Trev, I think this works well, as it is showing the bird in it's natural surroundings and also gives a sense of scale for the bird.
Well exposed and good detail.
As you say, it makes a change from "in your face" images.
Just wish I could get one, can but hope SadSadSad
