One of the unexpected pleasures that I have found in photographing animals and birds are the varied behaviors that I see. Every day is different, different reactions, although there are certainly similarities. And then, as all good Humans do, we ascribe our own emotions and views on what the subject is doing. So, here are a few of my buddy, the Little Green Heron of Juanita Bay.

"Gee, I just DON'T understnad you guys, with them long Black Thingies stuck on your faces. Weird Beaks if you ask me...."

This next picture was the second in a sequence as the bird climbed from the lower to the upper branch. It was quite a long reach, you can see the whole thing if you go to the 07/21.2005 gallery.

"I'm OK, got it under control....."

Not quite as spectacular as the shot from Harris, but I'll take what I can get :lol: :lol:

Hey, Paul, you are up late aren't you? Oh, wait, "you are up early aren't you????", I'M up late!

Yeah, I like that lens as well, I think I'll keep it for a while.

Sandi commented on "Birdy Salute" the other day, I think THIS one really does say it all. I'm just glad it wasn't like that one Harris posted the other day........

Are you absolutely sure about that Frank? Those sure look like wings...oh, wait, yeah, the FEET, that's the giveaway isn't it? They are BACWARDS :lol: :lol: :lol: Silly me, maybe I should change the title....

I'd call you a Smart-You-Know, but then we'd be in one of those Pot-and-Kettle things :wink:

Thanks, Frank, it really is fun trying to figure out what the heck they are thinking, if anything at all.....

How 'bout for the last one "Do these feathers make my a$$ look wide?"

Great shots!
OK, I'll open myself up for it...

Kevin, that works ONLY if it is a Female Bird. (I think I'll go hide in the closet now)....

Thanks, Kevin, I often find these much more interesting than the "posing" shots myself.

Thanks, Sandi. I owe you for the "Salute", I had never heard that before, but it does seem fitting doesn't it?

I think the "comical" really comes from our projecting "humanness" on the birds and animals. Then again, maybe they do this to see what kind of reaction they get from us. You don't think this Heron is reading this thread, do you :?: :?: :?: And just ROFLHAO at us :?: :?: :wink:
