Saturday's Critters #228

Welcome to Saturday's Critters!


If you love all God's creatures like I do and also like to blog about them and take critter photos this is where you can share your critter post. Link up your post and share your critters, join in with my critter party ! You can share any kind of critters the real ones, pretend ones, statues and paintings, a new or old post!


These are some more images from our visit to Kiwanis Lake in York Pa. The Canada Geese have claimed most of the park area for themselves. Just watch where you walk.




It was a windy day, check out the feathers on this Great Egret below.

















I appreciate and thank everyone who links up their post and for all the wonderful comments this past year !

Hello,

Very beautiful images! The feathers on The White Egret was very special in the wind.
Happy Weekend!

Phil Slade said...

Good Morning Eileen. You made me laugh there - "watch where you walk". Yes, those Canadas do know how to make a mess. What a beautiful condition that Great Egret is, I've never seen one in breeding dress.

Have a lovely weekend and thanks for today's link.

Mildred said...

Hi Eileen, I have no entries yet for this week, but wanted to stop by and tell you what a beautiful share you had, and those nests on previous post are amazing. I can only see such in Florida. Recently I did hear of a rookery of Great Blue Herons a two hour drive from here though...hmm Happy week...hoping for Friday~

The Egret shot in the wind is a favorite! Yes, be sure to watch where you walk around those geese. I found out the hard way. :) Happy Saturday!

The egret is spectacular, Eileen, but give me a good old ordinary goose or duck any time.
Have a great weekend!

Wow! What great pictures of the wind in the Egret's wings!! :)

A bad hair day for the Egret! ;-)

Wow - love those egrets. We have a lot of Canada Geese that are permanent residents here - they should be hatching their babies soon, haven't seen any yet, but hopefully soon. Happy weekend.

Dee said...

The egret on the nest shot looks like "oh, you CAUGHT me!" LOL

beautiful birds, Eileen!

Jeevan said...

The egret looks gorgeous in its white feathers and I would love stroll along with the geese on the lake bank. Lovely shots

Lowcarb team member said...

Yes, that wind did seem to ruffle the feathers.
Lovely set of images Eileen, thank you.

Enjoy your weekend.

All the best Jan

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Love the nest pic~ wonderful. And the windblown feathers are beautiful. I know what you mean about Canada Geese ... I had a real love-hate relationship with them when we stayed on the lake in Oregon. So sweet with their family groups on the water ... so messy on the land around us. Thank you for hosting.

italiafinlandia said...

Lovely views of the Egret.
So perfectly white and smart!
Have a nice weekend, Eileen!

JEN Garrett said...

I remember Vs of Geese flying overhead as they migrated. What a sight!

Our photos said...

Amazing feathers !

Victoria said...

Astonishing feathers, so delicate looking!

John's Island said...

Hi Eileen, What a neat group of photos. I now know what they mean by "getting the feathers ruffled." :-) The Great Egret takes it in stride. Thanks for sharing, as always, and for your kind comments on my blog. Hope you have a great weekend! John

Andy Wilson said...

Where there are geese, there are geese "landmines"!

Sandi said...

Beautiful!

Amy Franks said...

Looks like all the birds are enjoying the Spring weather.

Denise inVA said...

Enjoyed the photos of the geese and especially the egrets. Their feathers are very regal looking. Thank you for sharing Eileen and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Linda said...

Your egret is awesome! Lovely feathers!

diane b said...

Love the shot of the wind in the feathers.

Karen said...

Those wispy feathers look angelic! Wonderful photos, Eileen. Have a blessed Sunday.

Amazing photos of the egret,

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

had to laugh at 'just watch where you walk ' as it is the same situation at a local park close to me where they love the creek :)

Helma said...

Hello Eileen,
you show some very beautiful pictures and I think the egret is also put on the picture very nicely.
I never thought about sharing my birds. Because of the accident, I still have to get income again. Next week I will share the post of the tree stickers.

Have a very nice new week.
Greetings, Helma

Adam Jones said...

Good morning Eileen! I think Egrets are so very lovely, and graceful and you always capture them well. I also can't say enough that I thank you for keeping our love of critters and blogging alive. I appreciate you being there for us and for the promotion of critters! Enjoy your week.

Jeanie said...

Eileen, one day I will see a great egret in person. Until then, I am extra grateful for you!

krishna said...

I usually see herbs and egret on the morning while walking.. today i saw one bird, first
I thought that was heron, but I'm not sure.. it has very dark blue head, and very dark blur patch on both wings..

Irma said...

Hello Eileen,
Beautiful pictures,the feathers on The White Egret are very beautiful in the wind.
Best regards, Irma

Stephanie said...

I wish you a happy Mayo Eileen.
Thank you always for your visits.
Buen fin de semana,amiga.
Besos.

Beautiful photos. It is very hot here and the birds are back in force. There is a woodpecker that never stops, crows to pick the fruit off any tree and more pigeons than I would wish. And they all make the most awful racket very early in the morning :-)
