Egrets and F&F, etc;

*Egrets in the Rice Paddy*
These Egrets pictures were taken in the middle of last month.  At the near by rice paddy, I found them enjoying the lunch with other birds :-)  The egret on the frame of the header was my pic from last Sep. I found the color of the beak is different. 

Funny faces and one well-taken picture;

You can see Wagtail and Bulbul in the pictures below;
I could take the pictures of egret while the farmers planting rice the other day.
Looking forward to posting :-)




*Fence and Flowers*
While driving back from our capital city last month, the little river side was taken care of; it was a bit early for iris flowers. But 'Urn Orchid' was beautiful♪ 'Calla' was from my neighbor's flower garden.

And I could find time to take a picture of the moon on June 1st.   Yesterday, there was an announcement that we got into rainy season. One shot before that p:-)



Dear Friends;  I'm trying to catch up with you.  Hope Visiting You Soon♪
Thank you very much for stopping by; I always appreciate your sweet visits;
(About my header; sorry if unmatched, changed for the newer post

The egrets are fun to see, I used to see them across lakes when I was a child. Someone mentioned on their blog recently that the blue on the bills is a breeding plumage color. The park with the stream is so elegant with the fence and benches, such nice touches and upkeep. The orchids are so pretty in bloom too, I think I can remember trying to grow some once but they disappeared after a while. Your photos are so pretty, dearest Miyako! Hugs from the PNW.

Such cute egrets. I just love their long flexible necks :-) Interesting the color of their beaks are different. I wonder if there are several different colors. The flower pictures are beautiful. How nice the area is very well taken care of! Love the wooden trail. It must be very nice to stroll around on the trail and enjoy flowers!
The moon shot is gorgeous! Glad you got to capture right before rainy season. I haven't heard official rainy season announcement here but we get lots of rain lately.
Have a wonderful day, Miyako san xoxo

Lvely series of Egrets and an interesting fence

The egret pictures are wonderful. I'm sure they find lots to eat after the farmer churns things up for planting. It is rainy season here in Florida too (and the beginning of Hurricane Season). So far no problems ... I hope it stays that way! We have had some rain, but just in the afternoon usually.

The Egrets are beautiful. - It's cool to see a rice paddy field. Loved that fence with the flowers. Really nice looking.

The Egrets are such beautiful creatures. You have captured them well. I love the wooden fencing in that lovely riverside park. What a pleasant spot.

Dearest Miyako,
What lovely photos you show us here.
For having lunch with such an outlook where egrets dine as well, is a blessing!
Love your header, so artistic; à la Miyako. That is French...
The wooden fencing also is work of art and adds to the natural beauty.
Sending you hugs for the weekend.
