Camera Critters # 5:

Birding Again!

We went birding in hopes of spotting the Red Knots and the Ruddy Turnstones. Their stay here is brief and we were disappointed to have seen either, perhaps we arrived to late in the day. However, here's two of our beauties from today:

I love the Egret photo. Not just the bird but the grass and water behind it. It looks really good.

Great pics. I love the one of the egret.

Fabulous. I am learning how to use my camera and by the time I get it all ready to take the picture they would have flown away.

Oh wow those are some great photos, i always envy people that can take such beautiful photos of birds,I think maybe because we live so close on the road we don't get many different kinds of birds.

I enjoyed your Osprey and Egret photos. I shared an ‘inquisitive feathered visitor’ today at Small Reflections. I hope you’ll stop by to see.
Happy Mother’s Day … hope it’s the best ever.
Hugs and blessings,
