Hey what a wonderful start in this New Year dear Keith !! A great capture of this awesome bird :)
Wow - how do you improve on that as a starter for the new year.... nice one, Keith :)
Nice one Keith!...a good start to the year...[;o)
Exquisite, Keith. Kingfishers are having a difficult time up here, with all the muddy, swollen rivers...
Lovely pic of the elusive Kingfisher :-) I have'nt managed to get a half decent photo of one yet !!! I was amazed the other day when walking the dogs . Saw 11 Egrets in the flooded field . Then someone said they saw 12 together !! Shame they are so skittish as they fly away when they see you .Happy new year to you . May you capture more cracking bird photos :-)Mark
That's lovely Keith! It must be the closest you have managed so far. I would be happy just to see one, I haven't for years!
It's a beauty I'd say.
Thank you Elizabeth :-)Thanks Pescalune. I'm hoping this year gets me the picture of this bird I really want. :-)Thanks Tricia. :-)Cheers Trevor. Came out better than I thought it would. lolThanks Phil. Lovely birds. A pair that were nesting last year got flooded out when water rose at the local lake. I hope they have more success this year.Thanks Mark. I've been trying a few years to get a decent shot of one of these. Getting there. All the best for the new year. Have to meet up again soon.Thanks Jan. Yea, getting closer lolThank you Bob :-)
he's beautiful. perfect pose.
Thanks Theresa. Yea, they're lovely birds.
Brilliant Keith - gets better every time.
I'm trying too...very trying. You have almost cracked it. I'd be like a dog with two tails if i'd got this close to one.
A nice first shot for the year Keith well done
Keith, and it's a good one! A rather stern looking fellow! "leave me alone or I'll poke you in the eye!"
Thanks John. Getting there.Cheers Adrian. Yea, almost :-)Thank you Bob.Thanks dAwN :-)Thank you Robin.
