Stunning and brilliant capture. I'd feel very lucky just to see two Kingfishers posed like this--let alone to have captured this remarkable image. #1394904

Thank you all for your nice comments. I origanally saw a photo of two kingfishers on betterphoto by the brilliant nature photographer jeroen stel. I contacted him and went on a one to one workshop with him and this is one of the results. Thank you jeroen. Hope to do more workshops in the future. #9633472

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
