There are times when I have the camera at hand and am able to capture the unexpected and little known. Here are some.
This chap that looks like a giant mosquito but doesn’t whine, sting or bite.
Master Malachite loves the agapanthus in our front garden. Always on the move, He’s hard to capture with a mere bridge camera. This photograph was a surprise; I could never have imagined that his black and white wings.
Another flying surprise: I had been trying (in vain) to capture the interesting light on the side of the mountain, and was doing so from our front porch. When I downloaded and looked at the photograph, I discovered an almighty photo bomb.
Either Jack or Jill, one of the swallows living under our eaves, had been heading home.
We are quite accustomed to their swooping under the eaves and around us, so I took it for granted. Here, she looks enormous, but they are tiny – 10 to 24 cm (3.9–9.4 in).
