He's so handsome!
Like 1 + YS 1!
Sincere greetings from Taiwan to Canada.
Dear Carl, the Kingfisher ( in Germany he's blue and orange) is my favourite bird. He's very shy. You made me happy with that wonderful shot! Thank you very much. L and YS.
PS: My actual gallery is out of order, I don't know why. So I managed to activate my old one.
Thank you so much for the L & YS, Enson and Karl! Yes, the blue and orange kingfisher is the Eurasian or common kingfisher, which is a very handsome bird indeed. Unfortunately we don't have them here. Your other gallery's working fine for me, Karl.
Hi Carl. I have been trying and trying to get a shot of a Kingfisher and I have yet to get it. I hope that when I finally do, it turns out half as good as this shot of yours. Like
Your friend, Cathy
Thank you very much Cathy! I was just resting on a log with the camera in my lap when he landed on a nearby log, so I was pretty lucky. I watched him catch a fish too, but I wasn't quick enough.
What size is this cute chap Carl? Lovely capture ~ cheers, Maja
Hi Maja. They're normally about the size of a pigeon, but I don't think this juvenile's quite that big yet.
All the best ~Carl
That's a wonderful shot to be proud of. I have only a few but not as good as this. They seem to positively hate to be photographed!
Thanks Nawitka! Actually I was just sitting on a beach log, camera in my lap, hoping some otters might show up (they didn't on that occasion), when this fellow landed on an adjacent log. Gift-wrapped for me :)
Very well captured - we have kingfishers here in southern sweden too.. little blue birds.. I have never seen one myself though... one day I will be as lucky as you - I hope..
... greetings from sweden ...
Another excellent shot, Seabow. Wonderful capture! The kingfishers around here barely land long enough for me to see them - I certainly haven't had an opportunity to get a shot. Very nicely composed! YS Cheers from Ontario, Patty
Hello dear Carl, I'll send this lovely little chap to you with my very best wishes for this new 2011 ~ may it find you in good health and grow full of new challenges and rewards ~ love and blessings dear friend.
Hello Maja. Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and of course I wish that you and yours also have a happy new year!
