Fish in a Jumper
This morning was lovely and sunny, too nice to be indoors, so my sister and I took a short walk with our cameras.
We walked as far as the river, which isn't very far at all, and admired the views from the bridge.
My sister spotted a dipper. I took this photo on full zoom, which isn't enough to show the bird up well. My sister's camera captured it better with it's bigger zoom. It was lovely to watch the bird diving into the water and swimming around.
Then I spotted this fish beneath us on the bridge. It was just keeping it's place in the river with very little effort against the current. It looked most peculiar, as from our position above, it looked to me as though it was wearing a jumper. It's head and tail were pale while the rest of its body was dark. It was probably a salmon, a big one too.
There's plenty of leaves left on the trees.
There are still flowers to be seen too.
Altogether, a morning to brighten the spirits.
