This picture is a big crop from the original frame.
I was thinking over posting this picture or only the full frame picture and I decided to post this one first.

This picture was taken in the next day of the former picture Where is my fish?, I had the luck in this day to capture the kingfisher in the moment that it sat on the branch after its 'fishing trip' you can see here the last drop of water coming out from the fish mouth. Well, the fish didn't have any chance at all, as you see, the kingfisher pinned it right in the middle...

Full description you can find in yt former post Another Kingfisher.

I hope you like it. I am very aware of what you said about the burn on the white flash, so I masked it using PS and the Lasso tool, then inverted the selection. I am aware that their is a trade off here between brightening up the image and losing the feather effect around the white flash. A more skilled person than I could re-introduce that, using blended layers of just that area. The more I study it the better the shot gets. Thank you for asking me to post and I hope it sparks some ideas for you.
