are the most photogenic,


They need no makeup for their closeups.

No photo-shop,

nor artifice.

They are natural born beauties.

  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!

    • ‘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!!

      • 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™₯

        • 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

          • 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.

  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.
