Bombay Hook, Delaware

December 12, 2013

I am linking up with NF Winged   and  Skywatch Friday 

Wow, I can not believe this is my 700th post...

After working full time during the week I really look forward to the weekends. It is my time to go birding, do some skywatching and just about whatever I want. So, it is time to share my skies for Skywatch Friday and some more birds for NF Winged. These are more shots of birds from Delaware and the skies as we headed home.




We saw some huge flocks of Snow Geese while driving around Delaware.



Here is the flock of Snow Geese seen at Bombay Hook NWR.



A pretty scene and sky at Bombay Hook NWR.
 


Not the best shot but probably one of my only American Kestrel photos.



 I do not like the utility poles, but since we were on the road while the sun was setting I had no choice.


The sky as we were almost home from our overnight trip to Maryland-Delaware shores.



It was a gorgeous and colorful sunset, we just had to stop and take a couple of photos. I hope you enjoyed my post. Thanks for visiting my post and  blog and I always appreciate your comments.

I am looking forward to seeing you join in on my new MEME called Saturday Critters..early Saturday Morning..join in on the party and post your cute critters.

To see more pretty skies from around the world please visit  Skywatch Friday
and to see more of the winged critters check out NF Winged

Thanks to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday! Thanks to Monica the host of NF Winged.   I wish everyone a safe and happy long weekend.
