Life through the Lens (8 November 2020)

When my eyesight was still good, I was a bit of an amateur photographer. This is one of mine.

It’s funny, I was chatting to another blogger a while back after they had posted a photo of a kingfisher. I learned that there are many types of kingfisher in the world, but that the species in the UK is called the “common” kingfisher.

Having said that, kingfishers in the UK are far from common, I only ever saw them a few times and only managed to photograph them this once.

This day was a dawn trip to Blandford Forum, in Dorset, UK, another short drive from home, and I really lucked out, seeing both otter and kingfisher.

Oh, and I wrote a little ditty today to go with the image:

A kingfisher swiftly flew past,
“My God”, said I, “that was fast.”
Just a flash past my eye,
As it nimbly flew by,
An experience never surpassed!

I blurred some of the photo out, just to obscure the original copyright notice.
