Another Kingifisher from my private collection,
it was standing on the branch with the perfect light on it and it was 'puffy' and cute I hope you will like it.

Beautiful light and focus. Pose good too... What tops it off is the depth of field offering that perfect blurred background...

Hi Elroyie,
as you know this is on my whish-list and I hope to get a decent picture this year.
Maybe a wee bit tight above, otherwise it's great.
The shallow DOF brings out the bird very nicely from the BG.
Very good details, POV and lovely colours.
Excellent work.

Congrats and TFS

Fantástica Elroyie. Es la típica foto que todos nos gustaría hacer. El color y la nitidez son de cine.

Como es una foto realmente buena... le pondré un pero. Y es que hacia la zona donde mora tal vez querría algo más de aire. Quiero decir ajustarla un poco más a la derecha. Pero supongo que este "pero" es pura envidia que tengo de esta toma. ;.)
Realmente espectacular escena.


Hello Elroyie,
Lovely shot! I think this is perfect and I absolutelly love the pose of the kingfisher and lighting here.
Great job!

Wonderful shot! The sharpness and depth are excellent, love the light in the bird's eyes.


Hi Elroyie,
Sure it is real cute, The colors , lighting are perfect!, Good composition ( may be you could have put the bird little left and given more space towards the way it is looking :-)) exposure !
Good POV
