Only one word; Lovely!
Well done Dave, Kingfishers are very elusive,and difficult to photograph .
this is probably the start of Bird theme month. He looks like he leaned up against a white paling fence
only one word for this FANTASTIC
Nice! And to fend off the What's-it-got-to-do-with-Wigan? folks, for me it's a lot. Last time I saw one was on the rowing club basin bridge at Haigh. The kingfishers across the pond here are just three shades of grey. Thank you, Dave.
Nice shot. The bird looks short of tail feathers in proportion to its body?
Dave,that's absolutely beautiful..nothing more to add..just beautiful.
It's a cracker.
Another stunning bird photo!
Beautiful bird, you are so lucky to have seen one Dave.
As for the kingfisher being a bit short in the tail feathers, its a bird, it moults !
Well done, Dave.
I see the twitchers are all up nice a early.
Reason it might be short on tail feathers could be because it a juvenile thats not grow a tail yet.
There a video here of one of these elusive birds.
tsee tsee tsu hu hu hu hu
Again no need for words, just look. Aren't kingfishers short tailed naturally.
Thank you so much for this lovely photo, and all the others. They are of a very high standard & you should all be proud of them.
Dave,Absolutely gorgeous Great photo!
Thanks folks. The reason it has short tail feathers is......
Kingfishers have short tail feathers :)
Dave,Absolutely gorgeous great photo!
Beautiful bird,excellent photo.Last time I saw a kingfisher in the UK was in 1980 behind the Red Lion at the Dover Lock at Abram.I get pied and brown hooded king fishers in the garden here!
Great photograph - good bokeh.
I know as soon as I see your name, it will be a super shot. Wish i could see one as close.
Awesome pic Dave...cheers!!!
