The Sacred Kingfisher

Daily Word Prompt: Impulse
January Photo a Day Challenge 2nd: New

This is the last photo I took today on my SD Card. An impulse post and new image post. It is unedited (except for my copyright) As an additional challenge I would like to see what is your last photo.

So send your link in the comments or pingback and show what is your last photo as it is, crappy or not. I took quite a number of photos of the Sacred Kingfisher and some are much better than this but as an impulse and to show the new.

Come on join in and lets see what you have.

      1. Thank you Brian. πŸ™‚ I’ve had a Christmas break from blogging/reading so don’t know how things are with you, but I know you would welcome the rain we’ve had of late.

      1. All I need is Cee, Debbie and others to do a post and it may run πŸ™‚ Don’t worry about that Becky, I fear the moment has passed x


      1. Oh dear, my beautiful white duck has gone missing. No sign of her and she could not fly so I fear she met a sad ending. There is a remote possibility she climbed out of the pond and crossed to the waterway on the other side…but I have not seen her. Nature…sometimes it makes me sad.

      2. Nature has a habit of doing that especially when it’s a “friend” who disappears. I had one of my favourite chooks disappear, I thought well she’s gone to a predator and one day she appeared back in the yard with eight chicks in tow


  1. What an excellent idea! I delete photos from my SD card every time I use it so I had to cheat and look in the folder on my laptop. I haven’t taken any photos since Christmas Day so here it is:
    All the best for 2020 Brian, I’m glad you have had some rain and that you are safe. It is very scary over in your country right now.
    Jude xx
    PS love the kingfisher. I’d love to see one here let alone photograph one!

    1. Thanks Jude πŸ™‚ I delete when I down load as well. The last one in the well organised folder system helps πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
      Yes safe for now. My place longer on fire, well I haven’t been able to get down the front yet but I think OK. No smoke to breathe either is a bonus. I am lucky compared with others x

  2. I love kingfishers but have never managed a single photo of one…thank you for yours! They are too fast for me. Very good idea for the challenge, Brian – but I have deleted my card! Wish you a peaceful weekend!

      1. πŸ˜€ Well, my daughter just left for UmeΓ₯ in the northern part of Sweden, so it is a bit sad, but I have started sorting old clothes to give away, and that keeps me going.

  4. Mine is a night photo of the moon over the house, it’s blurry, too blue and really not post worthy. But I wished to tell you about it. πŸ™‚ (Oh, it’s the last I uploaded to my comp. It’s a week old. This year I don’t take photos daily. Chances are I have more recent ones still in my camera. I’m angry with it because the automatic focus is out of focus.)

    1. That is OK Manja. It was just a bit of fun and my kingfisher isn’t quite in focus. My auto focus tends to either focus on what’s behind or in front of my subject which infuriated me no end
