As I was walking off the dock this morning, a burst of the most brilliant colour flashed through my periphery and came to rest on a mooring line some 20 metres away. Cursing that I didn’t have a decent camera with me I fished out my iPhone and started taking photos of a distant speck, whilst slowly walking towards it. Incredibly this fabulous little creature allowed me to approach to within a distance of about 2 metres before it flew off. What a very privileged start to the day I had.
