We continue this from here:
This Kingfisher makes a noise in the locality. I was not familiar with its call until recently when I actually watched it shouting near our window!! Now I can identify its call from a neighbouring tree. It tries to steal fish from my pond.. it has actually done so before, but evaded being photographed. This time, my younger DD was able to shoot it up from amazingly close range when we were not at home. Here, it has found not a fish, but a juvenile skink - they are found near the tree there.
Let's continue to see what you all see too!

What I saw today... Part 10
We continue this from here:
Thanks, Dinu. I appreciate the help. Such a pretty bird. Do you have something covering your pond?
I do, kwanjin. See photo taken on April 1st this year, and note turtle's head. Forgive me if I posted that one already. I'm planning on taking the netting off the pond this weekend, since the gold fish and turtle have enough leaves to hide under now. Too late in the year for egrets here now. But ya never know. LOL! : - )
Dinu, your DD is following in your footsteps. You must be very proud of her. That is a great photo. : - )
BBS, I hope. I got some catching up to do. : - )
No, I do not protect the pond surface from flying invaders. It rained steadily for a long time this morning... since I was off work today, I enjoyed getting drenched and walking around the yarden with a little umbrella (to protect the camera) and took a few shots. Here is a sweet scented rose with some 'fresh pearls' attached to its petals.
Love those spider friends.

Not country, kwanjin... I will be precise now... part of anatomy.
Oooooooh, how pretty! I saw a Monarch today but didn't have my camera.
Hmmm...hlep me, folks. I can't quess where the photo was taken. Nose? Armpit? LOL
How can 'hair cuts be sold'!? It's a job! JFYI, my barber takes 25 rupees, which is roughly half US$. Of course, it is an ordinary saloon, but more expensive 'parlours' have emerged (to fleece!) innocent people here! Yet, they don't sell hair cuts! Interesting terminologies used there, anyway.
This is my DD's picture I share here.
Wrist? Again, you are very near to the answer but just not right. Try again.
Beautiful, LoN. Mother Earth. Earth is worshiped. It's sacred. "Our native soil"! Wow too!
Nice, kwanjin. Nice woody shot despite the setting being dark.
Thank you. That was on purpose.

Woohoo! I think I made myself see a tenny tiny tomato on my one and only plant. LOL
Either the bug was on the folds of skin on the elbow or on someones lips. I think it was the elbow, myself.
Lovely photos everyone. I'm so sorry I've had other concerns and haven't been able to post as often as I'd like so I guess we get to play a bit of "catch up".
Oh Dinu, when I was taking Geology classes we always called them (Mother Earth) mud crackies by wacky! We don't generally see that color in our area, but we still get them sometimes.
here's one I cropped, of a Mama Quail. DH has seen her babies in the tall mustard plants we are letting grow because the bees are still working them. I guess the mustard gives good cover. Although this one was seen up on this rock on the hillside.
