Juvenile Starling - #nature   #wildlife   #birds  
I have never posted this to a theme because I have used a filer on this.

This young bird entertained me over the summer as I had breakfast at the Blackheath Tea Hut.

He just looks so 'regal'

Mexican Jay - #nature   #wildlife   #birds  

#NewBirdPoker  curated this week by +Marilyn Benham created by +Phil Armishaw 

Shots You Really Like
Simply because it is the only shot I managed to get of this bird. I did see plenty but they were not performing for the camera whilst I was in Mexico last year. And it has the look of inquisitiveness that is so common amongst members of the crow family.

Half a Fulmar - #nature   #wildlife   #birds  

#NewBirdPoker  curated this week by +Marilyn Benham created by +Phil Armishaw 

Shots you like

I took this a few weeks ago. I was so close to the Fulmar, about 1m, that this particularly shot filled up the lens. Fulmars are special birds to me as when I was a teenager, I did a full survey of the cliffs of Thanet in Kent for the Seabird Group. I haven't post before because the shot is difficult to crop and, as the caption says, I only got half of the bird. But I love the image because of the intimacy and also the gentleness it exudes. Fulmars are like albatrosses, they fly effortlessly. I think this image sums them up.

I am going to add my usual bird themes because even though it is only half a bird, it still captures its essence.

Fulmars are special birds to me as when I was a teenager, I did a full survey of the cliffs of Thanet in Kent for the Seabird Group. I haven't post before because the shot is difficult to crop and, as the caption says, I only got half of the bird. But I love the image because of the intimacy and also the gentleness it exudes. Fulmars are like albatrosses, they fly effortlessly. I think this image sums them up.

I am going to add my usual bird themes because even though it is only half a bird, it still captures its essence.

Winking Dipper - #nature   #wildlife   #birds  

#NewBirdPoker   created by +Phil Armishaw  curated by +Marilyn Benham 
Theme: Shots You Really Like

Dipper - winking in the English Gardens in Munich

When you shot at high speed often get a shot of mid wink when the bird's eye make it looks blind. What is interesting about the dipper it has a special film that covers the eye when it is swimming underwater.

Juvenile Starling - #nature   #wildlife   #birds  
I have never posted this to a theme because I have used a filer on this.

This young bird entertained me over the summer as I had breakfast at the Blackheath Tea Hut.

He just looks so 'regal'

Mexican Jay - #nature   #wildlife   #birds

Shots You Really Like
Simply because it is the only shot I managed to get of this bird. I did see plenty but they were not performing for the camera whilst I was in Mexico last year. And it has the look of inquisitiveness that is so common amongst members of the crow family.
