MORE BIRDS FROM MY ARCHIVES

Once again I haven't taken any bird photos this week and am relying on my archives.  The first two were taken on road trips.


Both taken in Florida a couple of years ago, an Egret and a Cormorant.


And another little thing with wings, a Skipper taken closer to home.



For the following as they become available, with my thanks to all our hosts Eileen, Misty, Anni and Stewart.  You can on the memes below to visit other participants.

  2. Oh my word! It looks like you are standing right beside these birds!! So beautiful, and great detail. I have never ever seen a skipper this color! But the eyes give it away. The ones here all seem to be brown.

    Your archives are a rich place.

  7. Hi Denise, looks like what we call the Great White Egret, has the yellow bill. The Cormorant is a wonderful image, ours seem to have an eye more on the green side and love the Skipper. Have a good weekend Regards John

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
