One Word Sunday: Lost

Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday-Lost’, got me searching through my Florida wildlife photos, and I quickly came up with four, showing a poor creature that has lost its life. Of course all creatures have to eat to live, but it’s always rather sad to see the ones that have ended up as part of the food chain.

Mr GBH however, looks delighted and obviously doesn’t think it’s sad at all.

He seems to do quite well with his fishing expeditions and certainly hasn’t lost his touch over the years that I’ve been observing him.

You could say that any fish within striking distance of that beak has already lost the battle.

The Cormorant is also very adept at skewering his sushi for lunch. Another hapless fish lost for all time, about to go down the hatch.

I hope you’re all having a lovely, relaxing Sunday. If you have any photos which show something lost or as in my case, of a creature that lost the battle with a predator, just click the link.

My Sunday Photo: A Green Visitor

A lone Green Heron flew down for a brief visit to our backyard the other day. It’s the first time I’ve seen one of these gorgeous birds so close.

They’re really smart birds when it comes to fishing, and have worked out how to lure the fish to within striking distance of that dagger-like beak. Here’s a fascinating video I found of a Green Heron fishing with pieces of bread.

Donna of ‘Bay Photos’ blog got some beautiful shots of one of these birds. Hers had obviously been to modeling classes and really knew how to pose for a photo shoot, whereas mine just stood like a glum-faced statue.

Wishing you all a very relaxing Sunday.
