Hello Lou,
Very natural shot showing the beautiful Ringed Kingfisher in its environment. Looking at your WS, it seems that this area of Costa Rica is very rich in various bird-species. I like your choice to show the bird in a generous composition.
I send you all my best wishes for a Happy 2010
Kind regards

Vaya maravilla Laurens. Aprovechas el tiempo en tus viajes!

Un abrazo.

Hallo Lou.

Ook dit is weer een erg mooie foto van een mooie vogel.
Lijkt me wel apart om al die bijzondere vogles te vinden en zo te kunnen fotograferen.

A fine looking kingfisher and a first for me Laurens, your inclusion of the immediate surroundings into the composition made this also an ecologically significant capture. TFS it MF.

Hi Lou,

Some day maybe I will see a Kingfisher for myself. This one is so special with the beautiful red, white and blue colors. Fine details of the face, eye, beak and wonderful feathers. A very nice pose on the branch surrounded by the pretty leaves. I love the other two pictures in the workshop as well.


Hi Laurens,
This is a beautiful and exuberant bird, here in Venezuela also exists, but I never could get a good picture of it. The environment is very natural, light is accurate and appropriate for the stage.

I wish a Happy New Year 2010 to you and your whole family.

Hallo Lou,
Weer een mooie bijdrage uit Costa Rica. Je ziet deze soort veel in Midden- en Zuid Amerika. Goede contrasterende kleuren en een uitstekende compositie.
De allerbeste wensen voor 2010,
