  16. Incredible sea birds Eileen.
    I'm always partial to the bonaparte's gull...they're so small and pink legs/feet. At least I see them as pink instead of orange. Maybe I'm color blind and didn't realize.

  58. Hi Eileen...oh my I am not sure what is going on, it shows no comments and that has to be wrong. I so enjoyed seeing your Skimmers, the Mystery Bird that I only saw myself the first time this past February. I love to watch them skim over the top of the sea water, amazing flights. Hoping that you are doing well~

    ReplyDelete
  59. Can I consider my Ferns as critters? Lol. I guess not but still I have entered in your meme. What some gorgeous shots you have taken, especially the one where the birds are flying out. Almost a National Geographic Shot.
