Forest Kingfisher

Forest Kingfisher

The next several pictures were all taken within a short time of one another at an abandoned fire hydrant dating back to World War II. Underneath it is a small pool of water, kept fresh by a leaking pipe, and all around is an ever-changing, ever-present population of drinkers and bathers. Itís probably still there, and undoubtedly just as popular.

This picture and the next are from a sequence that always makes me chuckle: the little Forest Kingfisher gets wetter, and wetter, and wetter, possibly on the theory that one dip is good, and ten dips is gooder.
