At this time of year my friend the Kingfisher who nests in the bank near The Cottage visits my washing line, the fences round the Cottage and the trees nearby. He is difficult to photograph because he visits quite late in the day when the sun is low. Occasionally his colours in the sun are truly wonderful but I've never managed to get a photograph in the correct circumstances. The best I've managed this year is this photo. I'll keep trying.


  1. This is a wonderful photo, GB...truly. The colors and the tiny little whatever those are (the flowery thingy's)...I like this.

  2. Have only ever seen kingfishers in Queensland so am very jealious that you have therm in your agarden!
