Welcome to the New Year!

For several years already I had tried to capture the splendour of the spread wings of the Woodland Kingfisher but never managed. You can imagine my excitement when we were just relaxing on the deck of Rattray's and 2 of these beautiful birds landed on the tree just outside of the camp and started displaying their beauty while shying away an intruder. A little bit too far away but the converter came in handy.


Dear Friends, as the year is coming to an end (she said with some relief as 2009 to me was one of the toughest of my life) I would like to wish you a fantastic, wonderful, healthy and most of all happy New Year with lots of fantastic 'Kodak moments'. Thank you so much for your friendship, support and encouragement! I appreciated each and every comment, Flickr mail and fave more then I can express in words...

    Hi, im an Admin for `Howards Gallery` and would be very honoured if you would consider posting your stunning photo into the Gallery.
    This Gallery is so different than anything flickr has done before, as it is an easy place to belong to and participate, yet you have to have exemplary work to be invited here, and it is my opinion that this wonderful piece here belongs with us ……. I hope you will post this picture of yours with pride into the Gallery..…and we look forward to seeing more of your talent in the future......Kind regards..Caz (A)
