  1. Judging from the green bark in your top photographs, I wonder if this is what we know as a Fever Tree. These pictures are outstanding and well worthy of framing!

    1. ‘The great grey green Limpopo River all set about with Fever Trees.’ I love my Kipling, and yes of course you are correct. I saw them both times when I was in Africa and thought of Kipling დ

  2. I love the lovely soft white of the Egret Cindy…oh shoot, I love them all. Beautiful all of them, and especially the camera ladies shots as well πŸ€£β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

  3. Just like visiting a zoo to see birds. The snowy egrets look majestic, beautiful white feathers. Ha ha ha , yes no makeup needed to make clean and pure white face πŸ™‚

  5. That snowy egret is absolutely gorgeous (but so are the other birdies!) And how wonderful must it be, knowing you’re stunning without makeup!!

      1. I like their distinctive quacking as well, Cindy. I miss my visits to the park and river to feed and enjoy a moment peace with them, and of course I used to chat away to them. Hehe! β™₯

        1. The great thing about ducks, and most all animals, especially the wild ones, is, if you are a human who bothers to be still, not move, not talk, they will definitely try and chat you up. These animal chats are the best conversations I have ever had. I am super glad you and the ducks chatted. Ducks are discerning. They don’t just chat with anyone. Love to you დდ

          1. Thanks, Cindy. ON day I’ll get to see them again. I’ve been thinking of a disabled motor scooter. But with having to used the charger on the ground floor, I would get up to the 23th floor flat, and undoubtedly worry , something like; Did I turn on the charger? Did I lock the door? Snf rnf up do uncertain, I’d end up hobbling down to check.
            After settling down, I ofter thing did ?I lave the cooker on? Tap Running? Heater on? Lock the flat door? Shower left on? And end up just having to go and check. Might be a good thing, I get more exercise nocturnally than in the day.
            Haha! Taketh care, my dearest. β™₯

  6. Such characters and all look like they have ways to keep cool. Sweltering heat here in CabaΓ±as De Tavira by the sea. Love those elegant but also comical expressions with the egrets.

    1. So sorry about your heat. It is lasting soooo long. At least you are by the sea in beautiful Portugal. Stay safe and cool. I am worried about the fires in Spain დ

  7. I’ve got one image of a birdie (gull) at the shore one year. Possibly before digital…
    Anyway because of the light exposure the image looks like a painting!!

    Lovely birdies indeed.

          1. Once I get my house back in order – and learn to use my photo programs πŸ™‚

            Enjoy your summer. Hard to believe my grands are starting up school again by the end of this month!!
