Lilies and wagtails

This pattern design was inspired by a bunch of the most lovely orange lilies bought last week and a late afternoon walk. I was strolling alongside the river, when my attention was grabbed by a grey wagtail suddenly fluttering up to my eye level. I watched as the parent bird gathered a beakful of insects in flight and then returned to the two chicks noisily waiting to be fed on the stones at the edge of the water. I lost all track of time, and went back the following evening to watch the performance all over again.
