Last week, I’ve showed you two adults. This time I have a youngster for you.
Those of you, following me on Instagram, already know this image.
Although oystercatchers have these beautiful catchy red legs and packer, I do love this image in monochrome, too.
This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.
I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.
One evening I was on my way back to our apartment when I noticed a quite big bird flying slowly in my direction. As I saw on the flying style it was neither a goose nor any of the other birds I watched during the last days. I wondered, what bird was coming up to me.
While the distance shrank, I hoped it wouldn’t change its direction. It seems to me like a heron or an egret, but I was still unsure.
A few minutes later, I was sure to see a spoonbill in front of me, a member of the heron family. You can identify this bird easily on the very distinct shape of the spout.
