Gorgeous bird and well taken, Ian. The UKAR images don't look anywhere near as sharp as the outstanding originals on Flickr. From what distance did you photograph this bird? TIA.
Cheers,

Ian, too many images of KFs are never enough! Another fab trio of images with the second image being my favourite of the series. Nice work.
