  7. It's my first visit here via World Bird Wednesday. I've been "stalking" kingfishers all summer long and I know what a challenge they are to photograph. I loved seeing you images here. I'm sure it took real effort to get them.

I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
