1st Kingfisher ~ Selective Colourisation ~ by 

…………….BEST VIEWED LARGE!………………
Featured in the “True Beauty” Group, 24th July 2010

Fellow Redbubbler Irene Burdell and I went to the Rodley Nature Reserve, Rodley, Leeds, England, UK today (Weds 21st July 2010), which is a small wetlands area dedicated to mainly wild birds, ducks, Swans, and Geese. I have been to this reserve on many occasions, and a few years ago helped out, wardening the area. I can quite honestly say that up until today, I had never SEEN a real life Kingfisher, never mind capture one!

Here is my 1st shot, of my 1st sighting of this lovely British bird which we were told was a juvenile.

Sony A200.
Tamron 70-300mm macro lens.
Selective Colourisation and editing done using Gimp 2.6 free download.
