fleeting moments

something which lasts only for a very short time.
 
~~~~~~

On our second last morning in Botswana,

I came across this Red Breasted Weaver

in the middle of its morning callisthenics.

For no known reason, it simply let go of

the branch and free fell out of shot. 

I was so lucky to capture one frame of its fall

The whole encounter probably only lasted

around 15 seconds, at best.

 

 

Another few seconds and the sun had risen out of the sea’s grasp.  

 

The seagull thought it was by-passing me.

What it did not realise was that it gave me

the opportunity to capture one of,

if not my best, in-flight shot, ever.

 

This Black Shouldered Kite was too busy

searching for lunch to notice yours truly.

 

Bar one camera, my gear was packed

as I began the walk back to my car. 

Suddenly the rainbow appeared.   

It was all I could do to shoot off a couple of

frames before it disappeared again. 

A truly fleeting moment.

I only re-discovered this image

this morning.

 

It was planted in the car park

at Hopkins Falls (close to the coast)

which is near Warrnambool,

a Victorian coastal city.

 

A Google image search suggested

it may be a Tibouchina. 

However, I don’t think a  tibouchina

would grow in these coastal conditions. 

Ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
