    Having been an avian photographer for some five years I can appreciate every imagery you have attempted to create. Very vivid description down to the Kingfisher characteristic demeanor. (Report) Reply

    A beautiful poem about a beautiful bird. I used to see them quite often around the lake and river where I live. Sadly though I haven't seen one for a couple of years. They are truly a striking bird as is your poem. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you :) (Report) Reply
