Sapphire, Topaz and Tea..
A short post today, to celebrate my very first sighting of a Kingfisher at my tea table by the Wansbeck.. There was NO way I could have photographed the event but the colours in almost languorous movement registered first.
Then the kinetics of the colours and it's vector from below us, on the bank across the river and westward, soon to perform a flypast over the flotilla of Mallard
and the one Goosander
that had recently swum past.
All in a flash.. and within the aspect of the river that forms the backdrop of my Blog's title.. glimpsed through the trees.
Quite the most beautiful bird I have ever seen.
