Thank you Kate I am considering you invitation. I spend a few hours a day uploading and answering all my comments, so I find it hard to interact wit groups. If you are happy for me just to upload images then I can do that?
DAMNCUTEAWMY!!!!!! Ahem... and there's a perfect Kingfisher papercraft around the web. Seeing this photo, now I'm gonna try it. Before the papercraft thing and your photo, I never saw one of these birds! A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
Wow, this is fantastic. I saw a different type of Kingfisher once but it wasn't this colorful. This so so pretty. And it looks like you climbed the tree and shot this because I can see the texture of the features so well. But that probably is your camera's zoom quality at work.
