Mr. GBH has found the perfect perch for keeping an eagle eye on what’s going on here.
I find it absolutely amazing that he can land so precisely on the topmost branch. His elegance, poise, balance and control is so perfect.
This line of photographers on the boardwalk was focused on something lurking in the water. Whatever could it be?
Ah yes…….nicely spotted. Mr. ‘Gator was quite well camouflaged, but nature pbhotographers have very sharp eyes.
I wonder how he feels about the constant photo shoot that he’s subjected to, every time he sticks his nose out of the water. He’s quite a celebrity.
Happy weekend to you all.
Have you ever wished that you had ‘eye’s in the back of your head’? I know I have, especially when I was teaching at school. Ms Anhinga has solved the problem by turning her head through180 degrees. A very clever trick indeed.
Wishing you all a splendid weekend, filled with love, laughter, good food and lots of fun.
Mr Purple Gallinule accompanies his wife Gail on a ‘Woman’s Day’ walk through the swamp. As you can see, they are both wearing their most colourful outfits for the occasion.
Happy Woman’s Day to all of you who are of the ‘fairer sex’.
Here’s a sweet little visitor to our backyard. She’s a Marsh Rabbit, hence her name, Marsha. If it were closer to Easter, she could be the Easter Bunny.
Happy Tuesday, everyone.
Ozzie Osprey had a good fishing expedition today. Imagine tearing your raw fish apart whilst balancing on a tree branch. I enjoy sushi, but this is a bit much, don’t you think?
Hope your week is going as well as Ozzie’s.
“Red is for Valentine’s Day.”
Hope you all have a good one.
Some may say that Valentines’ Day is ‘for the birds’, but Mr. GBH takes his courtship very seriously as he builds his not-so–little love nest.
This is my entry for Debbie’s ‘Six Word Saturday‘.
Wishing you all a relaxing weekend.
Whenever I see birds in flight, it always make me wish that I could fly too. What fun it would be, and imagine how I’d surprise my friends if I could do this trick. I’d just be sitting there quietly, listening whilst they chatted to me,
and then suddenly, ‘Zowie’!! I’d take off into the blue, leaving them open-mouthed with astonishment.
Happy weekend to you all.
….I can do better. I can do anything better than you. No you CAN’T. Yes I CAN! No you CAN’T. Yes I CAN!”
When I saw these two photos, the words of this song from ‘Annie Get Your Gun’, sprang straight to mind. When we were young girls, my sister and I used to really enjoy performing it, and even won a holiday talent competition at the seaside in England.
After breakfast, Mr. Anhinga and Mr. Peli are having a wing-spreading competition. A close contest, but I think you have to agree that Mr. Peli wins the prize.
Not to be left out of the proceedings, Iggy also positions himself to also show off his handsome right profile. Nice try Iggy, but I think it’s definitely a no contest. Mr. Peli’s regal profile is extremely hard to beat.
I hope I’ve given you a smile on your Monday morning and wish you all a very happy week.
