Sacred Ibis

I am rather happy with this first capture of a Sacred Ibis, I saw In Sydney, Australia at our visit there: I named this post first, A Stork, it is in fact a Sacred Ibis I was kindly informed. So correction is in order.

Valley of Fire~5

my last post, for now , from Valley of fire. I thought we could do with a splash of warm orange hues, sunshine and warmth that has been in these photos. Sorry for the overload. This also works as my diary I gather my memories here. So these are smaller details, textures from this location and a bird and a lizard.

Not the loveliest looking bird, the Pelican , but it sure has a presence you cannot ignore.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Patience

These two things require patience, so for that reason I do not fish. I rarely take photos of birds for the same reason, this time I got lucky.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Found In Nature

as I am nearsighted, I rarely see bugs, and I usually do not have the patience to photograph birds…at least small ones. These I found ( read saw….) in the nature.

Sunday Stills – Creepy Things

This was hard, I do not often photograph creepy things,

The first is a bird skull found at our summer-house, a bird somehow gotten into our roof and died trying to get out – creepy..

A small mouse or some other rodent , well creepy?… aah!

But as a women I have to say I do not find them delightful 🙂 I nearly stepped on this when working in the field, cute here, but when in the house
