Feathers on Friday: Snowy takes off

Just as Grandpa Iggy decided to go for a swim yesterday, I spotted a beautiful Snowy Egret a little further along the water’s edge.

The rather loud sound of Iggy’s belly-flop, alerted the beautiful Ms. Snowy to possible danger and away she flew.

This is my entry for Charlotte’s ‘Feathers on Friday’ challenge, and is also day #6 of my ‘7 Days of Nature’ challenge; thanks to Anna of β€˜Una Vista Di San Fermo’ for inviting me to participate. If you would like to join in, just post a nature photo on seven consecutive days and link to my blog. You can also invite another blogger to take part.

I think the second photo might just qualify for Nancy’s Photo a WeekΒ  Challenge, ‘A Different Focus’, as I seem to have accidentally got the wildflowers more in focus than the bird.

Wishing you all a very happy and relaxing weekend.

  4. great photos…I see these fellows in Key West and Marco Island…got a photo of one this winter. He was simply walking along the sidewalk, without a care in the world. Wasn’t the least bit concerned when my daughter and I walked past no more than 4 ft away.

  7. to catch the taking-wing is certainly a great affair, and on the other pic the ripples, like a corrugated plastic sheet on the water bottom, in contrast to the soft feathers, I like this.
