... at least I got that color on my monitor :)

 

Hot Spring, Yellowstone National Park

 

Close to the entrance office of Rancho Humo I found this motmot with a butterfly for his chicks. Waiting for the moment we were gone to enter his nest. They make a hole in the ground of a mountainwall, if I explain it right. I hope you understand what I mean. Have a great weekend my dear friends and followers!

Some time ago I posted a similar shot of this bird with the butterfly more close. But I think the moment was beautiful enough for another shot.

After exploring the chilly trail around was so relaxing to sit on hot rocks by the lake

Peyto Lake, Banff NP, Canada.

 

Thanks for taking the time to take a look at my pictures. Your views, comments and faves are greatly appreciated

Lake Pukaki, Mackenzie District, Canterbury Region, South Island, New Zealand.

 

The water colour of the lake is a bright turquoise due to glacial flour, made from extremely fine rock particles that have come from the surrounding glaciers.

I don't have a positive ID on this bird, photographed at the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory, in Key West, Florida. But I think that it may be a Blue Dacnis (Dacnis cayana) aka Turquoise Honeycreeper, a species common to much of South America. Unfortunately, it's holding something in its beak, which accounts for the unusual look, but I like the shot otherwise.

Grand Bay, Mauritius

The motmot family is a family of 9 species from small to mid-sized birds and confined to tropical America. The Turquoise-browed motmot is the national bird of Nicaragua and you can find them in the North-western part of Costa Rica. Lately I have seen them sporadic in my area. Like all the Motmot they are beautiful and colorful birds and all (except the Tody) have two long tail feathers with some plumes at the end.

Eumomota superciliosa

Türkisbrauenmotmot ...aus der Familie der Sägeracken!

Wikipedia: In Costa Rica it is known as momoto cejiceleste or the far-less flattering pájaro bobo ("foolish bird"), owing to its tendency to allow humans to come very near it without flying away.

The turquoise-browed motmot is a well-known bird in its range and has been chosen as the national bird of both El Salvador and Nicaragua

Happy Truck Thursday!

This 1954 beauty is probably for sale based on where it was parked (Hillbilly Farm, Roy Rogers Road, Washington County, Oregon), but there was no "for sale" sign on the truck.

  

Liepnitzsee, Wandlitz, Brandenburg

Der zum Wandlitzer Seengebiet gehörende Liepnitzsee liegt acht Kilometer nördlich der Berliner Stadtgrenze auf dem Gebiet der Stadt Bernau bei Berlin und der Gemeinde Wandlitz und ist einer der saubersten Seen in Brandenburg. Der See füllt eine aufgegabelte Glaziale Rinne, die über das Grundmoränenplateau des Barnim verläuft. Der See ist eine Hinterlassenschaft der Weichseleiszeit und liegt in einer Rinne, die von bis zu 30 Meter hohen Endmoränen umgeben ist. Seine größte Ausdehnung erreicht der See in Ost-West-Richtung. In seiner Mitte liegt die Insel Großer Werder. An seinem Ufer standen die Landhäuser früherer hoher DDR-Politiker und lange war der See ein Gehimtipp für Naturliebhaber.

 

The Liepnitzsee, part of the Wandlitzer Seengebiet, is located eight kilometers north of the Berlin city limits in the area of the city of Bernau near Berlin and the municipality of Wandlitz and is one of the cleanest lakes in Brandenburg. The lake fills a forked glacial trough that runs across the Barnim basement plateau. The lake is a legacy of the Vistula ice age and lies in a channel surrounded by end moraines up to 30 meters high. The lake reaches its greatest extent in an east-west direction. In the middle is the island of Großer Werder. The country houses of former high GDR politicians stood on its banks, and for a long time the lake was a tip for nature lovers.

From our trip to New Zealand last spring. The amazing blue water of Lake Pukaki was unbelievably beautiful and truly a sight to behold.

 

Many thanks for all the kind comments and faves on my images. Stay safe and have a good weekend everyone.
