[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
First, I need to appologise my absence, there are some things that are 'filling' my time...

Now for the picture, this is a kingfisher that I pictured with almost the first light, you can see on the worm colours on the kingfisher.
The background are far dry water flowers, they gave me a very good 'decoration' for this kingfisher.
This picture was taken on the summer, know it is not the kingfisher's season around here.
I hope you will like it.

Full description you can find in my former post The last drop... Full Frame.
