This Kingfisher has been visiting our garden for the past week. Every day I have tried to get a photo but it is just too quick and flies away before I can even pick up my camera. Today it was sitting on a shady branch trying to escape the heat. I couldn't get too close, though. So I took this picture through a window and my lens was at full zoom (200mm).
When the sun hits it's wings the colour is the most vivid shade of blue.
The texture I used was Fremantle using Soft Light at 33% opacity. I named this texture after the beautiful stone buildings we saw on a visit to the town of Fremantle in Western Australia.
