Seedbud: A very specail capture. Took me a moment to see the subject. I loked that!
Very nice shot! Glad you caught site of the bird and shared it with us!
We have kildeer that nest on the ground. I’ve never seen a nest, but I’ve been told they’ve been spotted even at the edge of parking lots or in the rough on golf courses. Keep those eyes open! (Us, not them. They know how to be attentive.)
I love it! We’re lucky when our “giants” are good, aren’t we?
Oh this takes me back to my childhood! I found some baby lapwings in long grass and being young I wanted to protect them from predators. So, I sat for hours watching over them as no doubt their mother sat in the grass elsewhere watching me. I stayed until it was so dark that I got scared and sadly went home. There i got punished for being naughty and staying out late. It was much later that I realised that lapwings nest on the ground and I was doing more harm than good!
Photography + Poetry = simply wow!
Sweet, brave thing!
Very nice find.
Oh, that’s cute.
ahhh playing peek-a-boo
Aww, beautiful. The picture & verse capture the delicate situation perfectly.
took me some time to realize it!! I totally love it
really amazing! Do check out my blog at leisure, budding poet. Lots of love! abhijeetwrote.wordpress.com
great shot, great words
Looks like a brown thrasher, perhaps? What perfect camouflage and, yes, the “look” says it all – extreme alertness, the fierceness of a mother, the fear of losing it all to the intruder…
Marlin Perkins…remember him??
Very nice and beautiful!
Just so breathtakingly beautiful. Another of my favourites…you are so skilled with camera and verse…a Crafts-person.
