Well an Egret a day, they tell me, keeps the squirts at bay… and these are just a sample of what I’ve capture lately…
But a heron a day keeps the squirts at bay..
Do you know why their feet are yellow ?? So they don’t bite their own feet under water… No they walked through yellow paint… or they like yellow socks…. who knows the answer…. I don’t…
and this bloke can attest to the fact that a heron a day keeps the squirts at bay… or so he thought…
What a capture Bulldog… who poops on their own door step ?? Only this guy, and right in my face too…
The last picture…priceless! Thanks for a fun post. In a way, your words and images made us feel like we were there too. Exciting adventure with funny twists!
Thank you … have a good weekend…
I am hysterically laughing at the last shot which you nailed unintentionally or not! Too too funny! All of the shots are great!
Thank you… I promise it was unintentional… I only spotted the photo when I got home..
First off, love your header! 🙂 I really did not know what to make of the title of this post until that last photo. What a great capture! 🙂
Thanks LuAnn… it was meant to fly not do that.. I set up for flight …
What a lovely post, made me smile… wonderful photographs, especially the last one fascinated me. Thank you dear Rob, love, nia
Hahaha…what an “action” shot.
A good one, well captured, unintentionally…
I love the bird pooping one – what an action shot! 😀
Thanks Dianne… a lucky capture, taken by mistake… I even love the indentation captured in the water…
Fantastic shots as usual Rob and as usual you made me smile with the last photo. Excellent shot my friend. Thanks for sharing. 😀 *hugs*
Thanks Sonel… just one of those shots you don’t know you’ve captured/….
That final photo is just priceless! Talk about timing a photo. LOL! I so easily get herons and egrets confused, but they are wonderful birds. I love the orange feet! I do wonder why!
Thank you… the last photo was not on purpose just one of 11 shots taken in 3 seconds… but it was a surprise when I down loaded.,.. and I couldn’t stop laughing at my luck, had to share it…
Hahahahahah!! Can’t stop laughing!! Bird pooping – greatest shot ever :).
It was an unexpected capture… I thought it was going to fly not crap…
You have a wonderful shot of the takeoff rocket firing!
Thanks Col if it had just opened its wings or the like… lol
Even Molly Muddy Paws loves watching herons and egrets. Flying or fishing or just sitting around they are so cool. You have some great views of them…perhaps the last one is a bird brained commentary on it all?
Thank you for the comment… the last was meant to be a flight capture and I was set up for just that… it twitched and I hit the button… 11 photos later this was one of them…
Sono tutte bellissime Bulldog, ma l’ultimo scatto è fenomenale ahahaha
Thanks Pat… a little bit of nature caught on camera…lol
ha-ha – that last shot is brilliant. Not happy with our Blue Heron that hangs around – little did I know the day he posed for us for photos – by the pond and then the lookout seat, he had just eaten all our frogs and tadpoles – not happy, not happy at all!
They do get around and are always on the look out for food… he must have though you put the meal out specially for him….
I wondered about your birding skills when I read egret and saw heron. Until I started to read. Hahaha. Trust you to capture that last one! 😕
It was not on purpose.. I thought it was about to fly and I was set up for that… and then he does that to me… he flinched, I pressed and he sh….
That splains it.
Not intentional… I thought it was going to fly not skate through the eye…
Beautiful bird photos!
what a capture indeed! I’ve never actually seen a bird poop, although I’ve felt it in my hair!
I promise that is not what I intended to capture… I want to capture the bird in flight… it jerked, I took the shot and it took a shite…
that reminds me of a poem I read on the wall of a bathroom stall at a bus station whilst travelling across Canada in my early 20’s:
Here I sit
paid a dime
and only farted
Yesterday I took a chance
saved a dime
and shit my pants.
I do like that one…
somehow I knew you would… 🙂
I really like your third shot Rob. With regard your last shot, you must have had a fast shutter speed to capture it in full flow.
It was set up for fast shooting I wanted to capture a flight shot… he moved I pressed the button expecting a flight not a shite…
As you often say to me….”hmmm…these look familiar!”
although I must say, I’ve yet to see elimination in action (and pray I never will!) 😉
Thank you… the last capture was not intentional… I’d set up for a flight shot where I take 7 shots at 3 per second… I thought he was about to fly not take a dump… lol
Ugggh. Breakfast is officially over for me! Egads!!! Great shots, Bulldog!! And, of course, your words are what makes it so special/funny/endearing/etc.
Was I right on time for breakfast ??/ What are we having for breakfast.??
Bacon, eggs and raspberries…..farm fresh!!! You and Linda need to stop in!! 🙂 You will always be welcome!!
Gosh, I had never realised their feet were yellow! Great pics as always, Bulldog.
