Swimming bird surprise

I was enjoying the tranquillity and looking at a reflection of a pole and all the lovely patterns on the water (above). Suddenly the curvy line of the pole was interrupted…

… with the appearance of this bird from under water. After a second of two, it dove back into the water (probably looking for food). It disappeared for over 5 seconds and then came out again. This action was repeated over and over…

This machine has been working day and night, and has been around the bay for a long time. It moves to a different location everyday.

Looking at the big cruise ship front on, it’s huge black reflection takes up a most of the sea…

Nothing like a bird interrupting your reflections.

I really enjoyed all of your reflections. You have a very good eye for spotting them and I like the way you capture their beauty. I wonder if the machine is a dredger?

Robin said...

I love all the lines and patterns in that first shot. What a surprise the bird must have been.

Very nice selection. All the images are good ones, but the first two are special.

The image of Queen Victoria from the bow reminds «Louis» of this famous poster of the Normandie.

Evelyn Howard said...

@ Louis: Yes, it reminds me of that too.

The reflections with and without duck are just beautiful.
