I have 100's of wildflower images and always adding them to my files but find birds etc are a little harder to capture, so here is another. Black Oystercatcher.

Kildale, do you live on the water? You take such lovely photos of the shore birds.

I agree, Viceroy. I would not like to be the one who had to choose!

My first two entries for the month.

Great photos...glad to see they are starting to pile up.

I especially like the dragonflies, heron, and praying mantis.

Hi Turttle. I do live close to the sea, I could walk there if pushed. I'm also very close to the rain forests, hence my huge collection of fungi, mosses and lichens images.

Kildale, your photos make me want to visit British Columbia. I have been to much of the US, but only a tiny part of Canada and not even to Washington State. It is on my bucket list, or rather my "when the kids are out of the house travel list".

Especially when such lovely photos as these make their appearance.

Thank you. I was really pleased when I saw it on the computer screen. Several not so good photos, but this one is one I can be proud of.

Not sure, she was pretty tiny--a small burst of color originally on the seed head of plantain...then she jumped to a native (Erigeron)...and finally onto the dried grass.
