“Sometimes I arrive just when God’s ready to have someone click the shutter.”
I thought of this quote by Ansel Adams today. I was standing by the edge of the same pond I talked about in my last post (I am so addicted to this place!) and a Belted Kingfisher flew by and landed on a limb overlooking the water. It was the first time I had seen one up close and in person. He lingered long enough that I was able to snap several pictures.
As the name implies, these birds are expert fishermen. After graciously allowing me to take his picture, this fellow darted headfirst into the water and then flew off with a small fish. Wish I could have captured that! Maybe next time. For now, here’s one final photo.
