Slowly the buds and blooms, then the bees arrive, and almost within a day, the flowers are done, petals fall and the leaves have come. The tree is strong, it waits, it grows, and in time, a new cycle is begun. Will I always be a tree, or will you show me how, to be, all I can be.

Another one from Bushy Park,

   

Thank-you to pareerica for the texture.

Often the wildflowers are multi-stemmed. Alone, they're quite insignificant but together they make beauty.

Two mallard drakes show off their flying skills to a duck during a flight over Bushy Park duckpond.

 

I added a texture - one of mine added to Bruised Ego by SkeletalMess - to counter the white sky.

Taken on the plane before sunrise on the way to Hong Kong with my point & shoot camera. I had all the time in the sky to wait for this beauty!

 

Besides, I can't sleep on the plane, so was awake for 13hours flat trying to entertain myself watching movies and playing Sudoku!!! :)

 

This image is dedicated to Dani Romanesi - thanking her for the testimonial.

If you haven't already done so, I seriously advise you to check out her stream - I think her work is quite similar to mine, but she does the DOF much better! Ha ha! :)

Tag Gacha has opened and I finally got around to checking out how to "play." When I saw a HUD was involved I got a little nervous with flashbacks of falling into lava pits Mad Pea style. But as luck would have it, it is not a game based on skill. If you are trying to figure out how to start and shop this event look no further than.......

 

Read the rest and get the details on Threads & Tuneage

The term "peacock" is commonly used to refer to birds of both sexes. Technically, only males are peacocks. Females are peahens, and together, they are called peafowl.

 

Hope you are having a great day. Thank you for stopping by.

   

Among the most elegant of the herons, the slender Snowy Egret sets off immaculate white plumage with black legs and brilliant yellow feet. Those feet seem to play a role in stirring up or herding small aquatic animals as the egret forages. Breeding Snowy Egrets grow filmy, curving plumes that once fetched astronomical prices in the fashion industry, endangering the species.

 

Early conservationists rallied to protect egrets by the early twentieth century, and this species is once again a common sight in shallow coastal wetlands.

 

Size & Shape

These are medium-sized herons with long, thin legs and long, slender, bills. Their long, thin neck sets the small head well away from the body.

 

Adult Snowy Egrets are all white with a black bill, black legs, and yellow feet. They have a patch of yellow skin at the base of the bill. Immature Snowy Egrets have duller, greenish legs.

 

Snowy Egrets wade in shallow water to spear fish and other small aquatic animals. While they may employ a sit-and-wait technique to capture their food, sometimes they are much more animated, running back and forth through the water with their wings spread, chasing their prey.

 

They are most common along the coast, though they do breed patchily in inland wetlands. Snowy Egrets nest colonially, usually on protected islands, and often with other small herons. They concentrate on mudflats, beaches, and wetlands, but also forage in wet agricultural fields and along the edges of rivers and lakes.

These lights are going to be one of the most photographed thing during the Olympics.

 

It is memsermizing to watch. They can be seen 50km away from English Bay in Vancouver.

I am off for a very long day of work, so I might be too tired when I get home to catch up.

We will see.

Have a great day everyone.

I don't have time to do any post work on them right now.

Between shows at some of the pavillions, they continue to play music and the kids just get up and dance on the stage. This boy really got into it, and had some fancy moves too. A natural performer.

Every type of cloud.....

Eilean a' Cheò, which means island of the mist, is a poetic Gaelic name for the island.

The island was also referred to by the Norse as Skuy (misty isle), Skýey or Skuyö (isle of cloud)

There are many mute swans around the area, but no little ones. The City of Toronto sprays the eggs with oil so they will not hatch, and sadly, they do a very good job of it. Unfortunately there are times when a mated pair will sit/tend the nest for weeks longer than normal gestation before they will abandon it. This big one was having a bath in the inner harbour. Lots of posturing for the other swans nearby - or maybe he was trying to get his picture taken - such a clown!

The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere...eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.
