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.

On the local news last evening i caught the tail end of a report on a Snowy Owl sighting . . . I thought immediately of you. (I will check for more information.)
Very nicely done. They're all pretty, and I really like the second and third shots with the grasses in the foreground. The Sky shots are gorgeous too!ReplyDelete

Beautiful scenery of the sunset is really quite amazing.ReplyDelete
Congratulations on the 700th post on your blog.
The number of geese in that second shot is astounding! Always enjoy your sunset photos; you seem to get some glorious colors wherever you go. :)ReplyDelete
Oh, coming back to say that kestrels are extremely difficult to shoot. I think you did well!ReplyDelete
Fabulous photos. We have gigantic flocks of snow geese here all winter - they are amazing. I love the sky with so much color.ReplyDelete

Beautiful sunset! I love the formation of the geese.ReplyDelete
Beautiful skies -- absolutely wonderful color. And amazing all those snow geese! Wow, you didn't have to go to Bosque Del Apache to see them did you? (They were one of the reasons we loved that place so much, because we had never seen them before.)ReplyDelete
congratulations on the 700th post. what a milestone.ReplyDelete
Only Swan Geese, wow, lovely sunset. And what about the sunset, brilliant Eileen.ReplyDelete
We spent Thanksgiving in Chestertown, but the picture taking left lots to be desired. No pretty sunsets and I saw NO geese. That is a first. Love your shots of them. That formation is awesome.ReplyDelete
How exciting to see all those snow geese and coming across that beautiful Kestrel. Enjoyed these immensely. Thanks Eileen and have a great weekend.ReplyDelete
Beautiful skies, birds and magical wonderful photography ~ thanks carol, xxxReplyDelete

Terrific captures. The red sky is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
700 posts is a great achievement, Eileen. You're working full time too!ReplyDelete
The colors in the sky look stunning.
I was going to say that the second and third image are spectacular but all your shots are spectacular. My personal favorite is the second and third one.ReplyDelete
Beautiful skies and equally amazing bird shots!ReplyDelete
The geese formation in the first photo makes me laugh - how do they keep themselves in line like that?!ReplyDelete
Beautiful shots, Eileen, and congrats on #700!ReplyDelete
So many birds!!! And the sunsets are gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Congrats on the 700 posts Eileen.ReplyDelete
You captured some gorgeous skies. My favorite is the first one with the geese in formation. It almost looks like they have a double 'V'.
That's a lot of geese. I love the colours in the sunsets. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
Superb series of sky shots. Snow geese flying in symmetric formation is incredible !ReplyDelete
Lovely sunset, and I especially like the birds in the sky (first photo)ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful week-end!
The flocks of geese look wonderful - I'd like to see them one day!ReplyDelete
Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
Wonderful sky shots again, Eileen.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend.
Amazing shots! All of them!ReplyDelete
Incredibly gorgeous skies Eileen. And the Kestrel image is outstanding.ReplyDelete
Many birds Eileen, but also beautiful skies!ReplyDelete
Brilliant colors. I know what it's like working fultime and then are free on weekends. I have irregular shifts so should also work on weekends than during the week but got free again :-)
Oh there is nothing like getting outside with nature with your camera. I love all the shots. I quit worrying about telephone poles a long time ago. They are everywhere.ReplyDelete
The flock of snow geese are amazing. Great sky too. The poles actually add depth to the photo.ReplyDelete
And I also cannot believe that this is the sixth winter I have seen in the blogosphere.ReplyDelete
And so are your birds.
Congrats on #700 Eileen, that is awesome! Love those sunset shots, the pink is spectacular. Thanks for swinging by my blog earlier. Happy Friday!ReplyDelete
