My pride and joy

Kingfisher_2

I am so proud of this photo! I took it a couple of weeks ago, when John left me in charge of his super duper Pentax DSLR while he nipped out of the hide we were in and was privileged to see my first kingfisher. Since then, we’ve seen him a few times and he’s obviously feeding young.

We had hoped to go see if the babes were around this weekend, but unfortunately, John had to work. I doubt we’ll see them now, as the parents only feed them for three or four days once they fledge. Maybe we’ll get to see the next brood…

What a privilege - it must have taken a lot of patience to capture a prize winning photo like that.
