Photo Hunters #60: I Spy

The Photo Hunters theme this week is: I spy. So, all this week I have been looking out my window for something interesting:
And look what I saw! A Little Blue Heron, a Little White Ibis, and a Wood Stork. The reeds by the side of the lake are all brown because we are in a drought. This means not enough water. It has been raining, so the reeds are underwater again. I hope they turn green. Here are the same Wood Stork and Ibis, and two little ducks. Guess which bird holds a special secret in the feathers?
There is a hint in this photo. Can you spy it?
Look! The Wood Stork has beautiful black feathers tucked away under all the white feathers. And he has very funny feets, too.
I wish I could have spied an alligator for you, but I have not seen him for a while. In case you still want to see an alligator in my backyard, click HERE for a link to some alligator pictures.

Those are very good spying pictures. We don't have ibis here, but we do have egrets which look very similar. Well, we are off to bed. Mom has to get up in 3-1/2 hours.

Daisy, that wood stork... Has Ramses seen him yet?

We have brown tall grass in the Swamp because of the drought too, but it's getting greener! We love all the birds and wildlife at the Swamp! It's it just wonderful. But we're glad you did not Spy the alligator!

You have the most beautiful wildlife there, Daisy. And your grass stays green all year long. Ours is an ugly, dirty brown right now but hopefully soon it will start greening up.

Our photo hunt involves birds too and something scary that isn't a bird.

We liked your photo hunt the birds were very pretty.

That's like having your own wildlife refuge in your own backyard!

Black Cat said...

Fantastic photos! My Daddy has alligators nearby too at the marina and there is a sign saying "Please don't feed the alligators" right near where he used to moor his boat! They have been known to kill small dogs and cats so please stay clear of them. If one of them chases you, the best way to escape is to run in a zigzag fashion (very fast!) apparently.

Re. Pi Day, I heard this on the radio (BBC Radio 2) so it must be true...mustn't it...? :) xxx

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Yoo gots some furry kewl birds visiting! We don't think we'd like to see da gators in yoor yard, he might try to eat yoo!

Samantha & Tigger said...

Wow, you I SPY so well Daisy! The birds are cool and so neat that the Wood Stork has black feathers. Happy Hunting.
Your FL furiends,

Cecil the Cougar: said...

Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Skeezy said...

Wow! Great shots including picture of the bird flapping its wings. You must have had a great timing or just lucky.

That's okay, Daisy. You don't need to spy an alligator for us. But the birds were nice. Samaritan will dream of them tonight. He's a bird dog, you know.

Those were some great photos, Daisy. That wood stork is beautiful. We will pass on the alligator. They are scary.

D.R. said...

Oh no! Alimagaters!

I guess if he doesn't bother you, then it's okay. I have a lake behind my house, too. We have snakes and gators and everything in there. So we don't go swimming. And they don't eat us. It's a nice trade.

Tesla said...

MoMo said...

Very nice birdies. I love your green Princess outfit. You are always a princess!

feefifoto said...

Daisy: I left a comment on your gator post, but in case you don't see it, take a look here: http://blog.feefifoto.com/2008/01/dog-pack-attack.html

If you ever need help I bet these guys could protect you from gators and herons.
