Tewe’s Day Beauty #2

One more, because…hello? BEAUTIFUL! This is a snowy egret showing off breeding plumage. Don’t you just know all the lady egrets are crowding around his bad self? 🙂

Tewe’s Day Beauty! (And a 3rd picture added)

Nothing much exciting happening here on Tuesdays when I don’t have a review ready, so I figured it’s a good day to share some beauty with you guys. Here’s one of my favorite Florida birds, the purple gallinule. Just look at those colors! And the size of those feet! (The better for walking across lily pads without sinking…kind of like snowshoes for water birds.)

When I first started birdwatching, many years ago, purple gallinules were not very common in central Florida. You had to drive a good bit farther south to find them. Now, I see them pretty often on the St. John’s River, and other waterways, ponds, and lakes. I wouldn’t call them common, but I don’t think of them as scarce, either. But no matter how often I see them, I’m always thrilled by their peacock coloration, and the way they cluck along on top of the vegetation, picking around for things to nibble on.

One more picture, just for Caitlin! Just look at these feet, now! You’d think it couldn’t possibly hold on to that skinny stem!

Great Photo! (Indulge Me)

Every now and then, my daughter sends me a photo of my grandson, Kaelen, and I’m reminded what a good photographer she is. I just had to share this one, and it was not even taken with her “good” camera, but with her smartphone. It’s nice that it features my little grandbaby, but the fun part of this pic is in the details…particularly the ones seen in the lens of his borrowed-from-mommy sunglasses. Whaddya think? Cool, eh?

Sunday’s Blog of the Week: Backyard Biology

chestnut-sided-warbler

Chestnut-Sided Warbler by Sue Chaplin

I discovered Sue’s wonderful Backyard Biology blog shortly after I started this one nearly two years ago, and have followed it regularly ever since. Sue’s nature photography just gets better and better, but even more fun is that she combines her love of photography with a genuine interest in all things related to whatever she is taking pictures of at the time. Sue shares this information with her readers, in a way that makes it all entertaining and interesting. If you love animals, birds, scenic prairies, rivers, and more, you’ll love Backyard Biology. Do stop by and see for yourself. And be sure to tell Sue I said hi! 🙂
