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!
