I'm sorry for ranting on, but I just can't get over the quality of your photographs. This one, for instance, is just, well ... extreme! More real than reality.  How on earth do you do it? I have been photographing birds for years, but have never attained anything close to this quality of detail.

No problem, I'm just happy to get a reply at all :-) I am becoming a very big fan of yours. Your work is truly amazing. I'm gobsmacked every time I visit your site. I'm assuming you are a proffesional photographer. If you haven't already done so, you really should publish a book featuring your bird photos. Are you published at all? Your images are National Geo quality - at least!

An Absolute cracker of a Kingfisher. Spot on with sharpness, colours, DoF etc, what more can one say except I would have loved it to be in my collection.
