Nancy’s theme for this week’s ‘Photo a Week’ challenge, is ‘White’.
I see so many white feathered friends right outside my house, looking for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The largest of these is the elegant and stately Great Egret. Here he is, doing a quick survey of the breakfast buffet. In the 19th century these beautiful birds were hunted nearly to extinction for their plumes. Thankfully, this threat galvanised the conservationists into action, and the Great Egret became the symbol of the National Audubon Society, which was one of the first bodies established to protect birds from feather hunters.
It’s been an enjoyably busy week, and this weekend, besides attending the Sunday morning ‘Boot Camp’, I have to finish writing the news letter for our community magazine. Next week could see me scraping off old wallpaper from the bathroom walls of the house we’re renovating. Something to really look forward to. 😕 Have a great weekend.
