Watching the sheer beauty of Brown Pelicans 'in formation' will always catch my attention and awe of these prehistoric looking birds but when they are in breeding colors it's a double "WOW" for me.

 

I just noticed the 3rd one back has very little gold on the head!?

The Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. Light mist surrounds a few of the cliffs, creating a bit of contrast.

It's not often so calm here, so I took a bunch. I found out a bit about different exposures -- I just hope I remember some of it ...

Fanad Head, County Donegal, Ireland.

 

Some of you might be wondering why I chose 'puzzling formations' for my title, well the truth is simply because of these magnificent rock formations formed as part of the landscape of Fanad Head.

They truly amaze me, the detail and textures of the rocks are unique and even though I know the formations of the rocks and landscape all boil down to geology, how water and time can effect our surroundings, I still find these formations very puzzling!

So I tried to capture them best I could to see if any of you shared my interest.

The Pied Kingfisher (Ceryle rudis) is a water kingfisher and is found widely distributed across Africa and Asia. Their black and white plumage, crest and the habit of hovering over clear lakes and rivers before diving for fish makes it distinctive. Males have a double band across the breast while females have a single gorget that is often broken in the middle. They are usually found in pairs or small family parties. When perched, they often bob their head and flick up their tail.

 

This kingfisher is about 17 cm long and is white with a black mask, a white supercilium and black breast bands. The crest is neat and the upperparts are barred in black.

 

The Pied Kingfisher is estimated to be the world's third most common kingfisher, and being a noisy bird, hard to miss.

 

This kingfisher feeds mainly on fish, although it will take crustaceans and large aquatic insects such as dragonfly larvae. It usually hunts by hovering over the water to detect prey and diving vertically down bill-first to capture fish. When not foraging, they have a straight rapid flight and have been observed flying at nearly 32 m/h.
