I have a Kingfisher photo (shot in 2008) but
it is not TNable, i leaved in my archives,
an excellent photo of the Belted Kingfisher
with fine POV and framing, excellent focus
sharpness and details, the snowy environment
with the Kingfisher it is giving an
atmosphere (ambiane) effect to the image, TFS

Amazing image of The Belted Kingfisher almost monochromatic, outstanding exposure control under the harsh lighting conditions,
Good sharp and detailed fur texture, lovely natural colour and impressive out of focus background, fabulous picture and well done,
Congratulations Rick, have a nice Sunday,

What a unique and wonderful silver colour palette of the image and charming pictured bird. Its hairdress and colouration as well as cute pose are amazing. Tree branches create a fine patter and smooth grey canvas is the best BG for the scene. Compliments and kind regards.

I have yet to be able to capture an image of a Kingfisher. I see them here on TN and they are always so beautiful, but the ones I see are always so elusive that they never give me the opportunity to take a shot.
This Kingfisher photo is particularly attractive because it is probably the first one I have seen with snow in it. The plumage is so beautiful and the focus is superb. Overall a great photo and one in which you can be proud to have in your gallery. Well done!!
