As we explored one of the coves off the main channel in late afternoon, we came across this Kingfisher, with wonderful front-lighting, and a superb background in the distance. I really don't like the artificial perch (and in fact, cloned out two stretches of this same wire in the upper part of the frame), but hopefully this is outweighed by the positives of this image.
