Last?



Well, if the Mayan's are right, yes.



If not, I'll be back after Friday.




So, some pictures.


I hope I don't duplicate any of these from my other blog. The first one I know I've posted before on my local lake blog, but I was so pleased to get this close to my nemesis bird.





 Kingfisher. One I'm really happy with.




I went looking for some Waxwings that were near to where I live one day. I did get a few pictures, but here's one of a different bird, that I like just as much.




A handsome male Bullfinch.




A sunrise that was quite impressive a few days ago ......






and a rainbow, the same day, at the local lake.







Since I mentioned Waxwings, I suppose I'd better include a couple of my efforts.






 I love the punk hairstyles these birds have.




Nearly done.





Robin





 Great Tit






Black-headed Gull





And a couple from today, to finish on.





 Goldcrest




See ya ..........




hopefully.

  4. HI Keith....Well I'm beginning to wonder about this old world,especially after last weeks tragedy here in one of my neighbor states ! Anything is a possibility, so I say it has been good to know you,and a major hug just encase the Mayans are right LOL ; )
    Your photos are wonderful as always..especially like the Bullfinch, and that lovely rainbow!!
    I think your Punk Waxwing is saying "what's that you say" Mayans??

  25. Hi Keith,
    Love the Bullfinch, I have hearing the 'squeaky gate' call of these a lot lately.
    Hopefully we will all be back after Friday, but if not, it's been fun!
