A Moment in Time/Day 7: Trapped

My daughter’s flight to Los Angeles was cancelled today.  Heathrow is closed with no flights going in or out.  The motorway between the M25 and along the M23 are treacherous.   I was going to take my daughter to the airport and then go back to Eastbourne.  No one is going anywhere today.

While my daughter was trying to reschedule her flight, I noticed this fly on the window frantically trying to escape.  He must have come in somehow when I opened the sliding glass door to take yesterday’s photo on the balcony.  For the life of me, I couldn’t get my camera to focus on the fly.  There was so much white from the snow outside and the white of the walls and ceilings.  So I decided to try the snow setting on my camera and lo and behold, I got him after many attempts.  These little guys move really fast and don’t stay in one place for too long.  I would have liked to take a picture of him on the window, but the camera wouldn’t let me, so I got him on the ceiling near the window.

I eventually let him outside.  At least something was going somewhere today!
