I went out early this morning to see if I could get any better shots of the Kingfisher juveniles.

A successful trip, then!

Lovely shots, thanks for letting us see.

The more I look, the more there is to see!

These are stunning... again!

Are they stuffed? Are you invisible? How do you get so close?

It's not just the closeness to the subject though. Lighting, focus, framing, plain background - it's all expertly done.
You will only prise my 43Ltd from my cold, dead hands...

If I were being picky, I'd say the lighting is a bit harsh.

If I were to be honest overall though, I'd say I'm as jealous as hell. Fabulous Gary

I think all the comments I could think of have been said - wonderful.

They are on my local river, but all I ever see is a flash and they're gone
