It’s been a long time since I wrote on this blog. One reason or another, the “thrill” of blogging has left.
Himming and hawwwing about how to get back into writing, and I finally realized, as the Nike commercial says, “Just Do It!”
So, I’m a doing. I’ve got so many photos in my Lightroom Catalog, I figured that’s a good place to start. Post the pics, and clean out the catalog.
I love watching birds. Particularly in Central and South America. Colorful and easy to photograph at certain times and in certain places.
Let’s get to it! Lets look at some birds photographed in Central and South America.
I’m not a “birder” so I don’t know the name of most of these birds. If you, the reader, do, please leave the name of any bird within the comment section of the blog. Really, I’d appreciate knowing the names of some if these aviary wonders!
These little buggers are quite common in Central America. Thought the picture gives the reader a good look at the bird.
I would title the next one “Food!”
I loved watching these guys stalk their prey. Slowly and very precise actions.
The following photos are from Cancun, Mexico. Towards the local beaches there’s a swamp area that’s protected because of alligators. This is where I caught these birds stalking their prey.
Another bird in the same area of Cancun, searching for prey. Lot of searching goin’ on!!
Looks like we have another stalker looking for prey!
I like to call this one the leopard bird. Just because of the coloring.
The following are birds found in an estuary on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, outside of Merida, Mexico
A two-headed seagull or just twins?
Of course one has to have the obligatory pink flamingo picture – and standing on one leg is also a requirement! So, here’s my pink flamingo picture!
I learned there are endangered pelicans. I believe the next two pictures are of those endangered ones, but I could be wrong.
Don’t know the particular species of this pelican, but he sure has some nice colors to him.
