No new stuff, these are from the archives, some going back several years.
Various cameras, I've worn out several. I believe they were made to be used
Those are fine pictures, thanks for sharing them.
Great pictures. Thank you.
Could you please add me to your ping list?
Thanks for the great pictures.
I love the Mergansers.
Thanks for those wonderful pictures SWAMPSNIPER.
Thanks! You do beautiful work.
Did you happen to see the program that featured cranes that fly over the Himalayas to migrate to India? It was on the other day. Amazing story and the photography was superb. Pretty neat to be in a place where migratory birds head for winter. By March, there'll be hundreds of Canadian geese overhead on their way back north. It's a sight to see and hear. Wave after wave for a few weeks.
Thanks Sniper....we need the sanity at this time!
That one is a Red Bellied Woodpecker. Red seems to be a favorite color for woodpeckers.
Wow, great photos!! Thanks for sharing them! I especially like the first two. Very artistic.
As a bird lover I always so enjoy your photos. You bring out different views and intensities in birds. I love that fluffy red headed duck. So cute!
I also love bugs, so thanks for the bug pictures. I have seen some unusual bugs in my day and wish I could get pictures of some of them like you do.
Gorgeous pictures! Love the rooster! I had forgotten how beautiful their feathers are.
This is just what I needed this morning. I wasn’t really ready to get out of bed or turn on a light, but the dreams were too annoying.
Keep posting your old stuff - it’s all so good.
Outstanding. I took a bad fall on the ice yesterday afternoon and can barely move around this AM. Your pics have given a lift to a new day. Perhaps I should be thinking about livving elsewhere — no snow; no ice. LOL.
A bird with hair...Cool...Great pics...
Beautiful! One of the best parts of living on the Mississippi gulf coast is the access to the wildlife and many of your pix would sell around here.
Beautiful start to the day. God’s creation is filled with beauty and order. I appreciate the visual reminder. Thank you!
Some Gorgeous photography there, FRiend.
I see exceptional skill and talent. ...far better than I've seen from so-called professionals.
I enjoy viewing your backyard pics. ..very cool.
Wonderful! Thank you.
I get so happy when you post your pictures !!!! I see a photo and think that one is my favorite to date and then I keep scrolling and find another favorite.....I just love them all !!!!!
You should look up a picture of a Polish Chicken...they are quite unique and funny...they look like they are wearing a stunning hat on their heads..
We do love the great blue herons, even though they like to stalk DH’s pickle bucket when he is out casting for mullet, lol.
And the picture of the one spearing is an amazing catch in itself, VeryBigGrin.
Normally, I close with a wish for God to bless , but it is clear He has :) so I will pray instead, that those blessings continue!
Look carefully, the bird with it’s head submerged is a Tricolor Heron. They are always around but not seen as much as the Great Blue Heron.
AH! I forgot to mention the great shot and attitude of the cardinal fella! I am always amazed at the expressions and differences in manner, shakes head.
And the rooster - the close up is incredible, what a handsome bird, but OhMyGoodness - those spurs make me want to jump : o
Thanks again, FRiend and blessings.
Thank you! I had no idea, and couldn’t get an idea of his size either.
But the REALLY important question is - do they like to go “fishing” in old pickle buckets, like their bigger cousins - ala “Yogi bear” and the pic-a-nic baskets ; }
Thanks again and take care :)
They see no reason why your bucket fish are any different than other fish.
Au contraire! I think they find the mullet in those buckets to be quite the delicacy, and so handy too! ; }
