Making Friends

I have been so busy making friends this year…sparrowhawks, butterflies, bees, dragonflies, jackdaws and now…a red kite.

Against the backdrop of a slate-grey sky, the red kite hovered gracefully overhead for a good long while before I had the wit to think, “Go and get the camera, Sammi!”  By the time I had done so, of course it had flown away.

And yet, fortune must have been with me today, for a couple of hours later, standing in the same spot, who should I spot in the sky but the red kite once more (I am assuming that it is the same one because I can and it makes for a better story 😀 )

It’s a shame that second time round it didn’t fly as low as it had done earlier, but I can’t complain.  Although the picture looks better on my camera (you can pick out the white markings on the underwing quite clearly) at least its shape and forked tale are distinguishable.
