|I love the way the rain drops catch |
on the net that protects our fish
from the Heron and the Kingfisher.
One day I saw the Heron
standing on top of the rocks
peering hungrily at the goldfish
in their winter “hover”
at the bottom.
Such easy pickings when the pond is open.
|While the sun is shining the net |
is nearly invisible…
which explains why I’ve twice
seen the Kingfisher diving
from the sky,
only to be bounced back
up into the air.
I was worried that it was hurt.
But it flew up and scolded
loudly from a perch
high in the maple tree.
|When the rain turned to mist |
I took the three grandchildren out
to blow bubbles.
The moist air has a good influence
on the stability of the bubble.
It gives the kids opportunity to chase the rainbow balls ...
as the slight breeze carries them away.
Z-bub created some huge ones.
When one floated near,
I could see the tree
above, me, and
Z-bub in mirror image.
(Z-bub actually is in
So of course I took
an impromptu and
slightly blurry picture.
