Today had been a day of storms, of squalls alternating with heavy rain, sunshine and hail. A visitor landed in the garden across the lane, brightly arrayed with auburn plumage, fluffed out against the weather. I hurried to find the camera, clicked and zoomed and clicked again as he posed, turned, peered round at the sound, posed again and – sedately – walked away.

false economy – weak zoom
gives fuzzy pheasant.
For Haibun Monday at dVerse. The haiku says it all – I don’t have a photo to illustrate my story!
