It is a beautiful shot of him with wonderful DOF that really makes him stand out. All the colour tones throughout the image is beautiful.
Great exposure, sharpness and detail. Composition is great with the twig coming from the bottom right corner out into the image with him on.

what a pretty kingfisher, pam! :-) he looks (of course) a little different than the ones we have here in europe,
but he is as beautiful as they are.
and so is your shot - superb composition with the interesting branch "growing" out of the right corner and of course,
the background, it matches the colors of the bird, awesome. well seen & captured, thor.

I would agree, the BG blend of colors really enhance this image. Well composed with very good colors, exposure, and details..Shooting small birds is always about how close you can get. You did a great job of getting as close as possible here :)

The DOF in this photo is fantastic. The colours in the BG amazing and the Kingfisher is beautiful. Very sharp with excellent light and a great composition. Very good!

Was thinking about a young Kingfisher instead of a subspecies.
Well composed image and great BG.

I think all kingfishers are hard to approach no matter where on earth they are :o) I can understand your point very well here... I liked the composition, background, color tones, lighting and the pose you captured. TFS

Hi Pam - I didn't realize there were kingfishers in NZ! Nice view, though, as you say, a little closer would have added.
