Heron

I met different types of herons in Galapagos last May…  They are so different!

White…

One of the whitest things in the natural world is snow…

This photo was taken few days ago in one of the valleys (5013 meters above sea level) in Tibet.  We all wore heavy clothes and couldn’t even breath.  However, these sparrows were enjoying themselves among the snow…  It’s amazing!white with sparrows

Dirt

Human being is supposed to be the cleverest creature God created. Might be we are so clever, we are destroying the world faster than we expect…

I took this picture yesterday on a beach in Hong Kong.  The poor birds are digging out food for their breakfast.   dirt

This common magpie is lucky…  It got a worm!  dirt-2

Well, I wish we can be more discipline so that the earth can be more healthy, more balance and everybody, not just human being, can live happily together…  Amen!

Crane

This week’s challenge is crane…  The only time I had close contact with crane was last year in Hokkaido.  We went to a red-crowned crane farm.  Unfortunately it’s not winter time and I didn’t have a chance to watch them dancing…

One Word Photo Challenge: Chicken

When I first read this challenge, I assume its the babies of hen and cock…

However, I think it will be a difference to share some of the babies from other type of birds… They were taken in New Zealand.  Hope you like them too.

Fishes on the beach…

Don’t know why there were lots of small fishes on the beach this morning…  They attracted a lot of birds in particular the egrets to come by for free breakfast.

In the afternoon the party was even bigger…  I’ve never seen so many egrets in this area.  I don’t know if the fishes were fine for eating and if they were polluted.

Well, the egrets enjoyed their free lunch a lot …:)

What a busy and happy day!

Lonely Collared Crow

This Collared Crow came by this evening looking for food…

Take your time, enjoy… 🙂

 

Happy Magpies…

A family of Common Magpie built a nest near our place recently…  Yesterday, I found their youngsters playing on the beach, very noisy.  But they are so cute, aren’t they?
