[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Photo prise aux alentours de l'Hôtel Ranweli à Waikkal_Negombo.
Endroit magique et recommandé pour les amateurs d'oiseaux aussi beaux que peu farouches.
Cet hôtel situé sur une presqu'île n'est accessible que par un petit bac, tranquilité et dépaysement garantis dans un pays merveilleux.
J'ai encore en réserve quelques martins-pêcheurs et autres oiseaux.

Cordialement
Henry

Hey Henry,

Hello Henry,
It's very nice close-up.
Great details, POV and compo.

Hello Henry

Wow... how did you get so close? Outstanding shot. Lovely colurs and close details. Sharpness is spot on. The bright orange feet are a giggle. Lovely catchlight in the. Only one major problem...... it's not my photo! Congrats it's great. Thanks.

Bonjour Henry,
Très belle photo. J'apprécie les détails du plumage de ce bel oiseau. La composition est parfaite, de même que le contraste et les couleurs.
MPLP, cordialement,

What a darling! So sharp and so brilliantly coloured. Henry, I love his little orange feet too, and look at that twinkle in his eye. Very, very well done. Thank you.

Well done
henry. Great opportunity, caught it pin sharp and well exposed. Could you tell us a bit about how you came to get the shot? Did you consdier to take out the grass or reed to the left of the bird?

Hi Henry,
Kingfisher are often hard to find. And they are so beautiful. Great Picture. Good job.

Superbe photo Henry, dommage que ce soit un peu trop centré mais la qualité est là tout de même.
Nico.

Beau cliché qui met bien en valeur ce bel oiseau . Je n'ai eu la chance de le voir en vrai, mais en photo il me plait beaucoup. Vous auriez dû gommer la bande claire derrière la tête... Compliments Henry.

Very good digicam shot. Great sharpness and details. I would have cloned out the grass behind the kingfisher before posting, but apart from that well done.
