Sophie slung her camera bag over her shoulder. The light was perfect for landscape as well as macro photography.
She saw the space ship just above the clouds. As she watched it get closer, a telescopic cone protruded and shot a beam of greenish light onto a yellow-wood. The tree miniaturized and was drawn up into the space ship.
The beam shot out again, two metres in front of her and swept closer. Sophie grabbed the reflector from her bag and deflected the beam as it reached her.
As she watched, the space ship shrank and disappeared in green light.
