As we walked around the island, we came across this swan nesting her eggs. We made sure we did not go too close as they might leave the nest if you go too near the nest.
The female swan nests alone. The male is guarding the nest or is eating somewhere further away. The female rarely leaves the eggs during this month’s nesting time. So it’s virtually not eating of for four weeks. Even when the female leaves for a small distance to get something from the edible from the bottom of the sea it covers its eggs so they do not cool too much.
This weeks theme is Surprise At WPC PHOTO CHALLENGE – birds, caught in the act 🙂
This is my first entry to Monochome Madness this year, I love doing them but I have been slow in getting into the groove of blogging after my holiday. I have this in color, but love the shape of this tree so I decided to try it in Monochrome.
These first tree are Pikkukäpylintu -(finnish name) photos were taken last fall. The yellow one is a female
The other three photos were taken in Sri Lanka – and if I knew my birds – I would tell you their name.
Live birds are purchased in the market and to be are released for cosmic merit. Thai people believe that emissions are released in live birds and fish. Releasing them you are considered for forgiveness. Or so we were told by the locals.
While visiting a small island in Koh Yao Noi we saw these men in the market buying “forgiveness” a new beginning…
Here in Finland at this time of the year you do not see many exotic birds, so these are what I am able to spot in our winter skies…flying
This week’s Challenge is: Flying!
