July 16th- beauty and the beast

What a contrast! Stunning views of an adult male kingfisher at Ampleforth Lake today followed by a sighting of a pale giant horse fly drinking from our garden pond. One can only imagine how tough the mouth parts of this horse fly are to bite through cow hide. But what an impressive flier with those spitfire shaped wings, which make a loud and alarming buzz. Variety is the spice of life and the natural world certainly gives us that.IMG_5061IMG_5057
