Hi all!
My first a little use photo of this gorgeous bird.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The common kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) also known as Eurasian kingfisher, or river kingfisher, is a small kingfisher with seven subspecies recognized within its wide distribution across Eurasia and North Africa. It is resident in much of its range, but migrates from areas where rivers freeze in winter.

Hello Jiri,
very beautiful photo,thanks..

Hello Jiri,

Its mother nature and here we can't expect that our desire animal will come and give us a stunning pose. So, in my opinion better to take this picture as a natural habitat photograph. It would be better we could remove the branch(smile); but not possible. Beautiful color and well focus on its facial portion. Very common species even from my room(there is a pond just next to my house).
Thanks for sharing,

Good to see you posting again, Jiri.
Lovely Kingfisher captured from a perspective that gives fine details of its plumage.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Jiri,
Nice portrait of this wonderful bird. I love his posture and his color. Excellent composition and BG, very simple but so beautiful.Regards Sigi

Hello Jiri,
Nice work to catch such a splendid colorful bird. I love the exceptional clarity and razor sharp details of this image. Despite the difficult POV, the photo has the best quality.

Bonjour Jiri,
Agréable valorisation du sujet dans une belle lumière bien que son attitude et l'emploi du téléobjectif ont tendance à un peu l'écraser.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Jiri

Very nice close-up photo of the Common kingfisher,
fine POV, and the way diagonally it is framed on the image,
it adds dynamism to the photo, TFS

Hello Jiri,
Even if there is a twig in front of the bird's head, I like this shot a lot. Good chosen decentred composition and a very fine color-combination.
take care
