Kingsley Kingfisher

Meet Kingsley the Kingfisher. The third installment of my British Birds series.

About this creation

Kingfishers are probably my favourite looking bird. I could watch these beautiful creatures all day.

 

The wings are not quite as accurate as I would like them to be due to the lack of the right pieces but I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out.

 

I built a little slice of river and a twiggy perch for Kingsley so he looked more at home.

    Beautiful moc of a beautiful bird! Being a keen fisherman, I often see these rushing through above the lakes and rivers with the sun glinting of their back illuminating their stunning blue color! Great series!

    Luke Watkins Hutchinson Thank you! I've only seen a Kingfisher on one occasion and that was just a blue flash flying past me. I have a nature reserve nearby where there are Kingfishers and plan to spend a day there with my camera at the ready as I've always wanted to get a nice photo of one. Thanks for your comment, much appreciated!

    I must admit, I prefer the open wings version to the one you've proposed for the second series. (Btw, bought your first series, love it!)
