A Pied Stilt


On my way home from a hospital appointment with my 93 year old Aunt, I stopped by the Greenfields Wetlands hoping to get some shots of the birdlife there. It was late afternoon, almost evening, and I wasn't disappointed.  This delightful Pied Stilt entertained me for ages, so just had to share it with you!

Cheap Flights to Bogota said...

We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next, to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again -- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.
