Two of a kind!

These are so bright and fun to have around... The American Goldfinch - the name does more justice to the male one as the female is a lot olive in colour. Have a beautiful day! Posted for KINDASQUARE and BIRD WEEKLY – PHOTO CHALLENGE – BIRDS STARTING WITH AN “A”

Birds in my backyard!

Always together! It's fun watching these gold finches! The male is bright yellow and the female always looks green to me. This is the only green bird visiting me! Another point I have noted in birds is that in most cases, the males are brightly coloured and make all possible efforts to attract the female... Continue Reading →

Healthy feet are happy feet!

Just realised I need to focus more on feet... I hardly have any captures where the feet stand out! "Your hands and feet never take a day off, so take good care of them" - Tammy Taylor Have a great day... Posted for BIRD WEEKLY – PHOTO CHALLENGE – YELLOW OR ORANGE LEGGED BIRDS

Offsprings!

New additions to my patio family... It's always heartwarming to see the family grow! I also got to shop over the weekend - visited one of the malls after a long time. Everyone entering the shops had to wear masks and sanitise their hands at the entrance. At the shoe store, they had specific areas... Continue Reading →

With age comes beauty…

sounds very assuring! Spotted this on one of my drives... Found these at the San Diego zoo. Loved the placard below! The California condors were pink faced! The condors were perched very high and with the sun high on the head, couldn’t get a great capture!  The condors continue to grow pink with age! Would love...

Pecking forever…

Posted for BIRD WEEKLY – PHOTO CHALLENGE – WOODPECKERS   I had a pair of woodpeckers visiting me in early spring.

Caged or free…

Time to liberate yourself from the shackles in your mind... “The only real prison is fear, and the only real freedom is freedom from fear.” - Aung San Suu Kyi  This pretty queen - the female Red Cardinal is a rare visitor to my patio. Generally hangs out on the trees nearby waiting for food,... Continue Reading →

That tastes just perfect!

Inspired by Becky's - Sweet, Salty, Sour, Bitter or Umami... “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”- Virginia Woolf Don't count calories - eat to your heart's content at least on weekends 😂🤗 Have a great weekend!

Family…

I love to see the values of family in nature! The inborn sense of caring, sharing, bonding and togetherness... I often see these birds move together in pairs, at times carrying food for their partners or young ones... Last week I saw a family of raccoons play in my backyard. This was late in the...
