On The Other Side Of The Fence...

Lately the days of winter have been dismal, gray and cold, not shoveling snow cold but cold for us birds that grew up in tropical climates.


Photo above...taken through the window of our house, this snowy egret wades in the water of our neighbor's pond in search of fresh fish.

Photo below...I think he may have spotted something...and then again maybe not as he flew off shortly after the shutter snapped.

  10. Caryln and MAB Jewelry...Egrets are lovely birds and I must admit that I am blessed to live in an area that seems to be rich in avian life.

    AlyGartr...Cranes are lovely also. ; )

    T...Thank you so much for your recognition, it is a true honor of which I am very flattered.

    Erica...I just used one of the gadgets that Blogspot has in their Blog Layout section. Check out the options under "add a gadget", there are different ways to display your favorite blogs roll. Have fun.

    Handmade in Israel...Love your cards. I was lucky to be able to shot this photo through the window glass, knew that the Snowy Egret would fly away if I tried to open the back door and step outside. Fortunately the glass didn't seem to affect the picture. Had my fingers cross though, just in case.

    LeShabbytique...We don't have the snow down here but it has been colder than normal. Think everyone is ready for Spring to make it's appearance.

    Istanbuldailyphoto...Thank you for visiting my blog, I feel very honored. Your blog has many, many beautiful photos.

    Tash...I sincerely appreciate your complement. Someday I may take a course on photography as I really get pleasure from all of natures splendor. Many times my photos are more worthy of the delete button, but once in a great while I manage to strike pay dirt and I love when that happens. I am a big fan of your absolutely gorgeous Blog
