Little Kingfisher

I love this little kingfisher bird very much. It has such a philosophical expression.
I have seen it from time to time in my garden.
And after looking out for it for a while I got lucky - and was in the right place at the right time.
It's favorite place is on my telephone wire.

Or in the old Flamboyant tree.

Very beautiful but considered alien and invasive in SOUTH AFRICA.

The Blue Sky And Me

I love these two photos so much!
Without really being aware of it I have created images that have a 3D perspective.

The coral trees were in full blossom. The nectar of the bright orange flowers made the perfect late-afternoon snack for a black sun bird.

I have often wondered if I could choose any form of life what I would like to be ? What form of life would I like to experience? 
Would I like to be a bird? Sometimes it seems that they are so much more vulnerable than other creatures and their life is shorter.
But the experience of freedom must be immense.

Plumbago, an indigenous South African flower.
Like everything and anything, that is downplaying it's beauty it is of incredible infatuation.


Makes me want to have hair like like this

long as Rapunzel's

and of the deepest darkest raven black


Not really a Raven - he or she is called a glossy starling but everything about it is raven like. Mysterious, beautiful and darkish.
