I copied someone else's link, replaced with my image ID. There must be an easier way to make a share link for the forum? This larger size.

 

Drag and drop from your portfolio the zoomed image into another window with the reply box is how I do it. However it does not work in Safari, I have to change over to Firefox to do that.

What's even worse is because firefox ignores colour profiles suddenly every image looks like its on acid. Anyway, here's my contrib.

 

Mute swan preening her feathers. Symbol of beauty, pride, purity. Beautiful swan. England UK Stock Photo

 

 

 

 

This beautiful pen resides on a lake near me. It has not been an easy year for her - she had 7 or 8 cygnets at the beginning but only three survived with her on the lake. Several succumbed to an illness of some sort and one recovered but was raised in captivity. Then her cob was found dead about a month ago. The juveniles are now fully grown and independent from her. To make matters worse a courting pair landed on the lake last week and although it looks like they're co-operating they may try and shoo her and the juveniles off.

Down here in central Texas 90% of our hummer visitors are the Black-chinned's

Very pretty hummer, Phil. Never saw one. I see reflections of purple.

I had a number of species in my garden in the first house I lived in, but the cinnamons were the most common and were aggressive about running other hummingbirds off.   I had a beautiful shared back yard at that house.

btw, if anyone can ID the victim, i would appreciated it to add as KW.

 

The sharp dorsal fins suggest a bass type. Rock Bass maybe? Anyway some site  like this will be a good starting point.

thank you.  That looks promising, i'll cross reference with fishing on the Rideau Canal blogs.  All fishes i have seen me heron friend get were tiny, so this one surprised me.

Nice shot. Fun to get herons in action. They strike so blazing fast though, it’s only luck if you get the part of the action you want. I was always trying to get the splash as the head went in the water.

Spotted this grass snake basking on autumn leaves last week.

From a recent trip to Mayo in the west of Ireland...

I don't know how long it would survive out of water but wasn't tempted to pick it up🤨

Quite right! It would have assimilated into you.

thanks.  This one keeps picking a spot where the fishing is behind a branch, so haven't been lucky there.  Did miss the shop of fish entering beak, but i love the throat shot

Lots of unwelcome rain of late but it does improve the appearance of the waterfalls!  Hareshaw Linn in Northumberland, England
