Ahhhh Spring; Romance.

Before the first flower Buds crack
open, the Animal kingdom feels
the effects of Spring. Romance.
The search for a Mate begins.

Even while the wind's are still cold.

The Animal Kingdom, feathered as
well as the furry, the search is on.

Early Spring

" Thank You God for the food we eat,
Thank You God for the world so sweet,
Thank You God for the birds that sing,
Thank You God for every thing.
(My 3 yr old Grand sons nursery school blessing)
No Winter lasts forever, no spring
Skips it's turn.
(Hal Borland)

I feel that Spring is probably
the most welcome season of all.
A gift from God.

Aligators and Turtles.

It's my understanding the
alligator has remained unchanged
for 187 million years. So 
I will not try to change it.

The alligator can sit motionless for
long periods of time. I've tried to
outlast their motionlessness, and I fail
every time. I've even asked "what
are we going to do next" never got
an answer yet.

I've had people ask "ever eaten gator tail"
No and I don't want it to eat mine either.
But seriously they are very misunderstood.

Turtle soup ? No thanks.

I've never had a Gator threaten me
in any way. don't bother them and
they will not bother you.

Besides, they are always
( see above photo, smiling )

Blue Heron and it's Catch.

When it's time to eat
this young Heron 
doesn't hesitate.
Notice the fish in it's beak.

Lightening fast it is,
A meal, in the blink
of an eye and the
thrust of it's beak.

The young Heron is Proud
of it's catch. 

Silently, patiently, determined,
NEXT !!!!!! 
Survival is serious business.

Stork on a Stump

Just recently the Wood Stork was
moved from Endangered species
to Threatened.

Swamp, Wood Storks.

The Wood Stork has
beautiful Plumage,
But no feathers to
cover its head.

It doesn't seem to mind having
it's photograph taken.

But I'll not sit long it says.

Let's Hunt the Stork"s

Bird watching is a bloodless expression of ManOs
primitive hunting instincts.
We have substituted Binoculars and cameras
for the gun, but we still seek a trophy
A new species on a life list, or a photograph
of one of EarthO's rarest and most
exquisite creatures. Our search may take us no
farther then a nearby meadow-or it can lead to
the cloud forest's of tropical mountains.
( James A. Kern )
And I love it.

No doubt the Stork is
a Bad Haircut, with legs and wing's

Really could a mother love this bird.

If one can not catch a bird
of Paradise, better take a wet hen.
( Nikita Khrushchev ).
