Dropping In On Friends
One day last week we were watching three spoonbills feeding in the salt marsh during low tide.
At one point I happened to glance behind me and saw number four come gliding in from the direction of the swamp.
Our new arrival dropped right in and started feeding immediately while his three friends never broke stride and acted liked the whole thing never happened.
In the second and third photo you can see the antler from a deer skeleton that still remains out in the marsh from last summer.
Such beautiful birds!
They are pretty, and fun to watch too! Thanks for looking.
Un vero spettacolo queste tue foto, sono fantastiche!!
Grazie Pat! 🙂
Excellent work, I really like the “action” in the images.
Well I appreciate that very much, thank you and glad you enjoy the photos!
They’re far too busy feeding to acknowledge the new arrival.
That’s exactly right. It could have been a rhinoceros landing there and it made no difference or impression.
I think perhaps they may have noticed a rhinoceros?
I don’t know, maybe. But they never seem to care much about a large alligator so who knows? 🙂
