Coffee Cup, Feather and Magpie

13 Mar

1   Having my cup of coffee this morning  I realised that our kitchen light was reflected beautifully in the black coffee. I had to let it cool down before I could take the photo as it kept steaming up!

2   I took so many photos of Redruth this morning for another “My Neighbourhood” post to be done tomorrow. On my way back up the hill I spotted this tiny feather being blown back and forth in the breeze.

3    We’ve had the Long-tail Tits here again today but they don’t hang around to have their pictures taken – neither do the Magpies. They are very skittish and leave if there is any movement in the house. I stayed put in the kitchen, used maximum zoom and managed to get this shot.

This last is for Liz, as promised. I am trying to entice her to visit Heligan!

    Great photograph of the light reflected in the coffee! I don’t think I would even look for that.

    I’ve heard of magpies, but I think that is the first time I have ever seen a picture of one. They’re big!
