Beautiful Birds

Birds can be beautiful, it’s true. Think of a peacock tail, the wonderful iridescence of a hovering hummingbird or the fabulous and exotic plumages of birds of paradise. Beautiful is exactly right.

Then again, think of a cattle egret family recovering from a downpour and the word beautiful isn’t one that springs to mind. Characterful or hilarious: yes, beautiful: no.

I found this image of exactly that situation from Beautiful Birds Pictures and couldn’t wait to share it with you. Enjoy.

    Thank you for sharing this post Jackie,and if you click through to his Flikr page he has a few more beautiful birds to look at. A truly talented bird photographer.

  2. Yes, there are some stunning images there, and on Facebook and Stumbled Upon. I just loved the young egrets because they had so much character. We’re really lucky these days to have so much exposure to quality wildlife images. Not so many years ago that would have been unthinkable.
