I don't have many birds but since Betty likes birds, here are a couple from Florida.  Depending on your browser, you can clink on them to make them bigger.

Awwww,  birds! Thanks!

 

Here’s one of mine. A Cattle Egret in breeding feathers, taken at a rookery a half mile from my home in Oklahoma City.

Bit of a cliche but first light or dawn over a creek near me.

Yup. I became fascinated with birds at the age of 7 years old. It’s been a love affair ever since. As a teenager, I went with my boyfriend and his best friend who were taking their 22 caliber rifles (I guess they hunted small game with) to the country to target shoot. I figured they had tin cans in the trunk (boot).  

 

When we got there, I found out their targets were innocent birds, not game birds (which wouldn’t have mattered to me, a bird is a bird).

I threw a huge fit, but they kept shooting at them. I went into full-blown hysterics and they disgustingly quit and drove me home.

 

Men are from Mars, women are from Venus. With exceptions, dear friends!

Glad you stuck up for the birds Betty! I'm so enjoying the nature images.

 

Here's one of an egret in flight:

I've been amazed by how the same type of bird can exist all over the world. I've photographed the African Roller and the Indian Roller and now I see that there is also a European Roller. Such a tiny bird flying all over the world. How did they get there?

Great thread!

Mine is not much, but it is about ten minute by pushbike from my place and it brings me peace every time that I go there.

This was just a few days ago:

Is the Wet over in Darwin? I heard you had a rather dry wet?

I was waiting for the end of it but now of course it's all change. Everything is closed. I'm on standby in Alice Springs.

We had a very poor wet season this year. The dry will be very dry...

We are still hoping for a bit of rain, but it doesn't seems to arrive.

 

Are you coming to Darwin?

If you do, let us know when you will be here, we could catch up if you want.

 

Are you stuck in Alice, or just in standby?

 

P.S: Catch up after the Covid-19 of course, as there is restriction on the people that we can see at the moment.
