little visitor

This morning when we came home from church, we found this little kingfisher sitting on our porch right by the front door.  He didn’t fly off, and so we all went inside and I hurried to get my camera.  I went back on the porch and he was still there, but I realized that my battery was dead (must have accidentally left it on when I put it away), so then I went back inside to get the spare battery.  Amazingly, he was still there when I came back, and let me take several photos from about a foot away before he flew off.  We had heard a ‘clunk’ as we came up to the house, so maybe he flew into our window and was stunned.  Who knows.  But I’m glad I got the photo!
