very pleasing shot
could do with a bit of sharpening on the kingfisher and placing it off center a bit to the left
but thats just cosmetics

I'm jealous that you had such an opportunity to capture nature at its best

What a beautiful bird. I think a little selective sharpening would give it a lift. I havenít seen one of these before, he looks similar to our Kookaburra in build especially round the head and beak. Iím glad I saw this one.

The new year is full of time. As the seconds tick away, will you be tossing time out the window, or will you make every minute count?

Oh Yes great shot. Not as sharp as I would like but the image itself is vibrant enough to allow you to overlook that... Great job

Wow Herman, this guy stands out with great details - His stunning blue and white feathers are beautiful. And that marvelous navy blue beak and bright blue eye. He looks quite regal on that stump. The pretty background enhances this fella. You did good!

I need to catch up on things so can't comment too much. But I love all of your fine images. I might be lurking in the background :)

So jealous, kingfishers are my favourite bird, and having a very hard time trying to capture one. One of these days, nice post.
