Bad hair day? :)
Love the contrast of the Kingfisher's cool blue against warm fall colors bokeh. And the bokeh is so smooth and lovely! Wonderful capture.

Nice! I saw a Kingfisher in October but didn't get nearly as good a shot. Love that branch he's perched on, too.

Lovely 3D separation and framing. I've never seen one as sky blue as this though!

I'd be happy ever to see one, let alone photograph one. Beautiful.

Nice capture of this colorful fellow and there is a very nice background as well. The subject could be sharper.

Edit: It actually looks sharper to me now than it did when I voted. I would have bumped this up a point or 2. Just goes to show what eyestrain does to an an image after looking at 300 others. Sorry about that.

Love the colours and bokeh. That's a really cool branch the bird is perched on.

They are hard to get a good photo off. Anyone that did not try will not appreciate ..
