Today a coast guard boat and helicopter swung round in circles for quite a while and it wasn't clear what they were up to...training or search and rescue, but it sure made me think of all they stand ready to do. Through the binoculars I could see the colors flying.
Yes, that little sky blur is whirring wings...gives me a lot of respect for people that have adjusted their shutter speeds and bought lenses too big for me to hold up to zoom in and all... but the sight and noise got me down to the other end of the garden and
the tree stood still for me
and so did Phoebe in the window.
But not the day...it did not sit still for a minute and now the sun has set...
