Thank you! Great caption! Yeah "Kingfisher" is such an apt title for them, with their sometimes lofty attitude and poses. They are really fascinating birds to observe. =D

And its been quite awhile...I hope you are doing just fine. Hoping to see some new artworks from you sometime in future. (preferably Prydain ones!) :)
