Hi Zeno,
you're so lucky to have one of these visit your garden. I have only ever seen a flash of bluish green! Great composition and some fine detal in the feathers. The little bit of spiders web underneath the branch is a nice touch too.

Hello Zeno,

this picture is wonderful!

Hi Zeno,
Outstanding shot of this Kingfisher with amazing colours and details on its plumage. Superb lighting and a fabulous pose captured with perfect DOF. The darkish BG works well here in highlighting the subjects. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.


Beautiful picture of Kingfisher. This is one bird that never fails to raise the interest of the viewer.
