Ocean City, Maryland

I have more images of the sky and some fences from our last visit to Ocean City Maryland and Assateague National Seashore. I hope you enjoy!

Week's Favorite above and the letter G.... I am sharing these two photos above and below from Ocean City of a Cormorant and a Gull.



My Gull lineup in front of various fences. How many different fences do you see?




Another favorite for my photo hunt and skywatch. A neat looking sky over the bay side at Assateague Island.


The USA and Maryland flags at the Assateague Island visitor center.


One of the many yellow-rumped Warblers we saw at Assateague.


The boardwalk trail at Assateague.


A couple of horses seen near the tree and behind the bushes. I hope you enjoyed this post and photos. Thanks for visiting and for the nice comments.

Thanks to Theresa @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences this past year it has been fun looking for fences for my post. Also, thank you to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for doing such a great job at hosting Skywatch Friday.    I wish everyone a happy day and weekend ahead..

  1. Hello Eileen!:) Love the Cormorant and Gull picture,and the yellow bird, nice views over the water, and the walkway with what looks like a very well made sturdy fence. That last shot of the tree and horse with the wide exspanse of water in the background is a pretty scene.:)

  2. I rather like that shot of the gull and cormorant on the posts - it has a nice symmetry.

  43. Hi There, I see fence pictures on tons of different blog posts --but don't think I have ever seen that many different fences in one picture. You picked a GREAT one.

    The Assateague Island National Seashore looks like a fabulous place to visit. You have so many great walking/birding places not far from you... That is NEAT.

    Love the Gulls and Cormorants..
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  49. Lovely photos! That Cormorant is definitely showing you its best side. I like seeing the little yellow-rumped Warbler too. I like to feed them mealworms in my backyard.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hi Eileen, I really do love the design of your state's flag! The picture of the Yellow-rumped Warbler is nice. Have a great weekend!

  53. I love that tree shape with the horses and the water in the background. Lovely images!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hello Eileen! In looking at your great photos, I've just realized that I've never seen a Cormorant before. Something else to add to that bucket list! :-) Hope you've had a good week and are ready for the cold, which has to be better than snow, right??!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. It looks like five fences? I was surprised to see a Cormorant, maybe two, and another bird sitting in a fountain/pond in front of a high school as I drove by. Of course, I had to BE somewhere, and did't have my camera, either! Enjoy your weekend. It looks like a cold one!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Beautiful grouping of photos... especially like your skywatch shot for this week!

    ReplyDelete
  57. A great series of photos! My favorite is the Boardwalk
    Have a wonderful day!

  58. Another fabulous selection.
    I love the way that Cormorant does seem to pose.
    The boardwalk is another favourite picture and that tree, something about it I just like ... perhaps the horses help too!

    Have a good Friday and enjoy the coming weekend too.

    All the best Jan

    Great reportage and bird observations!
    The Yellow warbler is really beautiful :)
    Enjoy your weekend too!

  61. Hi Eileen,
    marvelous photos of a wonderful walk. Your first photo of the cormorant is stunning !
    Best regards, Synnöve

    ReplyDelete
  62. Love those first two shots. It is like the bird are right here in my bedroom. And the one with the two flags looks so familiar. The MD flag is a classic. Your captures always amaze me. You are such a wonderful photographer of our fine feathered friends.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Beautiful places, beautiful pictures! I love boardwalks... My fav bird this time is the warbler ... I never can get decent pics of the little guys when I see them in our nature walks. Thanks for yours!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I could spend a lot of time here! Beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  65. What a terrific boardwalk (I love boardwalks!). You certainly find interesting places to visit and explore, Eileen. Lovely skies, too.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Good morning Eileen. Thanks for sharing your gulls and cormorant on the posts and those blue sky photos. Are those yellow-rumped Warblers on their way back north now? - I hope so because it means that Spring is on the way. It has been a dreadful winter for all of us.

    That mighty tree in the marsh makes those horses look tiny but I'm sure thet're not.

    Have a great weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I really like the photo with the horses, not for the horses but because of the gorgeous tree!! It looks so majestic!! Happy Valentine's Day!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Brilliant post you have done, and I love the Cormorant, fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Great to see that little Yellow-rumpd Warbler. Won't be long and they'll be back here with us.

  70. You are presenting a wonderful post with a great variaty of photos.
    Thanks for sharing the beauty again and enjoy your weekend.

  71. Heisann.... Eileen! I see 5 fences.... and wonderful sceneries!
    My eldest son was 37 on Wednesday - and my youngest 33 today... these are my only children.

  73. Love your shots, Eileen.

    It's been forver since I was on Assateague. I don't think they had nice boardwalks like that back in the 1970s...

  75. I bet the horses love it there, think I'd like to take a walk there too, looks so peaceful :-)

  79. I love that tree! Your birds are always amazing, but what a great trail and tree!

    ReplyDelete
  80. These are all so beautiful! Love that last shot of the tree and ponies. I visited the island once many years ago, and I would dearly love to return and camp there under the full moon. It's such a beautiful place. Thank you so much for joining in Friday's Hunt.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I love the timber walkway... the leading lines are great! I also love the Cormorant and Gull on the posts.
    Happy weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  82. You've done well to incorporate a number of memes in one post Eileen. I've been seeing birds on my morning walks in Florida but just enjoy them for I haven't a clue what they are.
    Hubby and I drove to two nature preserves and everyone must have been in hiding. All the shots I was hoping to get, didn't happen.

  83. Beautiful photos. Your Cormorant looks so noble.
