Photo for the Week – 23 – Birds

First of all, I hope everyone had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.  And we wish you all a Happy New Year.  It was lovely taking a break… mind you what I didn’t think about.. was this.  I am on a blogging mission to post at least once a day for a year.  So last night was catch-up time and posting an image a day for each day I didn’t post.  😀 😀 😀

So with all my flowers of the day posts, completed it is time to settle down for the first challenge of 2019 – Birds


Little EgretWildlife photography is one of the things, we struggle with.. but this year we are going to get to grips with our photography and we both intend to go to places where there is plenty of wildlife.

It is so easy to stay in your comfort zone.. and one wildlife image that I did love taking was the little egret above.  Another image I photographed was this swan at Leeds Castle and I just love the swan’s reflection in the water.

So for the first challenge of the year, I thought I would select the topic of birds.  And I can’t wait to see your images.

Next Week’s Topic is – Roses

  9. […] A sign in Wales informs me that the raven is 25 inches long from beak to tail! I didn’t see any ravens in Wales but at home in British Columbia they’re all over the place, distinguished from crows by their enormous size and slightly more hooked beak.Raven on top of Cypress Mountain in West Vancouver. This character hopped all around us, aiming to get some crumbs from our sandwiches. He didn’t have much luck with the greedy (but cute) Whisky Jacks usually jumping in there first. A gleaming raven, the colour of an oil slick, strutting on the beach at the end of the Tonquin Trail in Tofino on Vancouver Island, BC. A Bill Reid sculpture of a raven presiding over the ‘birth of mankind’ at the Museum of Anthropology at UBC in Vancouver. In the native north coastal communities the raven is often bored and thus created the  world of humans for his own amusement. He is also a trickster, agin because he is easily bored.Sign describing the difference between crows and ravens of Picos de Europa, Spain.A raven supervises the parking on the signs leading to the Cliffs of Moher, Ireland. A crow on the slate wall, also at the Cliffs of Moher. The only difference between the two that I can spot is the tuft of feathers on top of the beak. The Morrígan, a Celtic queen, often appears as a crow or raven. Ryan Photography’s Photo for the Week: Bird. […]
