Throwback Thursday: a vulture tit?

While photographing birds recently, I met this little guy. Is it a skinhead or a punk? It also reminded me of a vulture. Did I find a new species, a vulture tit?

I guess, this little poor guy is quite young and the black feathers are about to come soon. Nevertheless, I find it quite curious. 🙂

Throwback Thursday: Fare well!

I guess you know this tree if you saw my yesterdays post.

It’s the same tree, but a whole trip was between these two images. Yesterdays image was the first photo taken in Wales and this one was the last photo. Morning and evening made a trip 🙂

This tree usually stands in the lake. But, the water level was very low because of the lack of rain during the winter. At least 0,5 meter of water is missing. The lake is approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) long and in size about 240 acres (~1 km²). So, you’re able to calculate, how many liters or m³ of water is missing. And, summer has not come until now. We only have May!

Climatic changes everywhere.

Monochrome Monday 5-18

This image is also taken during my trip to the Isle of Skye in Scotland earlier this year.

While exploring the island we found this tree located right next to the street. On the other side of the street (in my back when taking this photo), is a beach. The beach was the reason for stopping here. But, when I saw that tree, I got reminded to The Lord of the rings books written by J.R.R. Tolkien. He imagined a species called Ent. An ent is a tree-like being, able to move, see and talk. They understand themselves as being caretakers for the forests, just like shepherds do for their sheep.

Tolkien described male ents as being shaped like old, thick and ossified, while female ents are more like big bushes. Both are unable to get recognized by anyone when standing still with closed eyes. So, they can hide easily inside forests.

In this contexts, it seemed to me, that I might have found an ent here.
