Your place or mine...? by thrumyeye Your place or mine...? by thrumyeye
A while ago I was lucky enough to see two kingfishers mating.
This is the moment where the male bird lands on the female of its choice. The whole happening lasts just a split second...
Unfortunately the background was highly distracting, so I decided to manually soften it to bring all attention to this special moment.
I hope you'll forgive me that. ;)

It's just beautiful - and the camera managed to capture a really high level of detail in the foreground as well
