Doc,
I went from jealousy to resignation, if it is any consolation to you. :lol:
I have decided to just enjoy them. :)

With best regards,

Do you know which species it is? Is this one from your "birdsnappers" movie images?

A less often seen activity of a Malachite Kingfisher..

Regurgitating a pellet.... as we know, they eat fish but don't digest the scales and bones.. I shot at 12 fps and captured these 5 images within those 12 images in a second.. to give you an idea of how quick it happens.. blink and you miss it..

So these were shot with the a77, I presume, and not with a99.

I agree and am jealous of your talent for it. I love bird photography but am not as good at it as I like.

Fantastically and absolutely wonderful. This is (or might be considered) a true symbol depicting Freedom.
Now where is that bowing smiley?
