Kingfisher

The elusive Kingfisher to be precise.
This male below flew straight into my camera view and landed on a post.
You have to get lucky to photograph this bird.

  6. Roy, it's always a good feeling when you're able to make the most of a shot that presents itself when you least expect it.
    Is he lifting a foot in the first image as a signal to say "com'on mate, you've only got a few seconds to get those photo's then I'm off" ?...[;o)

    1. I have some idea where they are on the areas I walk Pete, but seeing one this close and the length of time was very unusual.
