Hello Steven.
Very interesting this couple of birds!
It seems like if they were having a serious conversation between them.
The POV shows us this scene with very detailed first plane bird, and personally I would have preferred a DOF wider to catch in focus the second bird also, because they have a such spectacular beak color, and the blues of the feathers are also maginificent, and deserves be admired.
Congratulations and thanks for share,

Witaj Steven!
Ciekawy typ zimorodka. Ladny kadr. Ciekawi mnie czy sa jakies roznice w wygladzie jesli chodzi o plec tych ptakow. Pierwszy pieknie ostry. Kolory bardzo dobre.
Gratuluje i zachecam do umieszczania zdjec czesciej. Pozdrawiam - Roma

These are so cute...and the pair of them makes the photo really sweet.

Hi Steven

Welcome to TN.

Nice shot. Well composed. I like the twosome with the bright red beaks. The image is clear and sharp. Nice work. :-)

Hello Steven,
Those two guys look great!
Wonderful colours and fine details, presented in a fine dynamic composition...
Well done!

Amazing shot of this 2 woodland KF.
Excelent compo and colors.
We didn't see often pictures from Cameroon, you're welcome.

Nice one, Steven!
Kingfishers are one of my favorite bird.
