Going through some holiday photographs recently, I realised that I did have quite a few reasonably good captures of birds...especially of the species that cannot fly or do not fly! Just from my New Zealand holiday itself, there were these birds I should proudly catalogue under "The ones which did not get away" in my collection entitled "Feathery Friends". Of course, there are no other categories apart form "The ones which did not get away".
For Poery Potluck on the theme "Nature and Life" :
birds of different feathers
nature's pulse of life
These could swim away from me, but I caught them before they dove into the water.
These were enjoying their morning paddle in the pond too much to mind my nosy camera.
This one loved the camera...so it came towards me.
This family is lovely, they allowed me to take this photograph even though Papa Duck wasn't around for a full family portrait. I wonder how Papa Duck looks like.
This is my favourite bird...the one that is in the centre of the town...the pukeko that could not run away from me.
