A close look of this beauty

One of my favorite birds in the Netherlands....

Baardmannetje, (vrouwtje), Panurus biarmicus

De Rietputten, Vlaardingen, The Netherlands

RSPB Langford Lowfields. Boardwalk - near the end. First visit for a while, I had a 90 minute wait before the beardie pings erupted and then it was all action. They (~5 birds) were quite confiding and came up to within a few yards away, almost being framebusters. Very very mobile, scarcely sat still for a moment.

To me, they look as though they're reaching out to me inquisitively.

A recent self portrait composite. I feel there may be some compensating going on here!


Thanks for taking the time to view my image.



Panurus biarmicus


Are these not the cutest little birds around? Well i do think so, it's one of my favorite birds.


In the period when i took this picture i had a lot of things going on in my life so i never got around to sort and develop the photo's. It's so much fun too see photo's like this one after all this time. I might post some more.


I am being self indulgent again, love em.

Many thanks to all those who comment on my photo's and/or add them as favourites. It is very much appreciated.

I think it's a Bearded Iris? If anyone knows for sure please let me know :)) Thanks..

I cut the beard and it made me sad.

Very colorfull bird.

OVP last winter.

no crop, converted to b&w, sharpened and added a vignette - simple :) this is the same iris that I posted to HBW yesterday now fully in bloom.

Face to face with a Bearded Dragon

Backlit, showing the seeds they eat in winter. In summer Bearded Tits eat insects.

Amazing encounter with this little chap today. Luckily for me he waited until everyone else had gone before jumping up onto a reed about 15 feet away from me and giving me both barrels. I was fair intimidated I was!


Actually, I don't think he was angry, more just celebrating the glorious Sunday morning.

My beard. Red from Ireland, grey from being old, black from Argentina.

A cluster of lovely Bearded Irises, shot during a walk through our Brooklyn neighborhood. We love those "beards" and the beautiful petal venation and color patterns.
