I had the good fortune to be amongst Kingfishers a few weeks ago and managed to grab a few keepers. It rained a bit and the light was not great but I think this actually helped me. Here are a few from my shoot:

David, these are lovely. I was so hoping to see some kingfishers in Ireland, but after my lens crapped out I was actually hoping not to...does that make any sense
I'll call the second, "The check out line"....he certainly does seem to be giving her the once over.

Excellent set of various KF poses David. I really like that spider's web under the perch, but it's kind of blended in with the BGD. I would try a curves or S & H adjustment on that area to bring it up more. I think it really adds to the shots.

Just outstanding! Superb lighting, composition, and background.

All very nice, but my favorites are #3 and 5.

Seems to be saying "Hey, what are you doing at the end of my stick?"

You do a great job on the KFs David. Lovely set of images. My only question: Where is the squirrel pic?

Fantastic, David! Those of us who dwell in the Northern hemisphere are at a huge disadvantage when it comes to KF opportunities and diversity; this set shows how to make the best of it!

My favorite here is #3, and I agree completely with TK about the anthropomorphic caption.

These are wonderful! The lichen-covered branch and, barely visible, the drops of rain and the spiderweb make an excellent backdrop for a very beautiful bird.
4 and 5 for me too. I think the soft green backdrop is part of why I like #4, along with the pose of course.
