Shadow Shot Sunday



Hey Harriet hosts this fun meme SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY.
Photobucket

Big bird, little shadow.

My guess is that this a common crane. I found it in Everglades National Park.

Your shadow shot Sunday could do double duty for this week's Manic Monday. Nice bird.

What a great shot..So beautiful.
I enjoy birds so much, especially since I have gotten older..seems I have more time to enjoy them..

Mary, I'm pretty sure that's a Great Blue Heron. They're so wonky. Happy SSS!

This is a great shot...the bird is magnificent...and there's a shadow as a bonus!

Jeri said...

Well done Mary! This is a wonderful photo - and shadow!

Raven said...

I need to get out and about more to check out the local wildlife but it's much too hot for right now.
Cheers

Great shot of the crane with his feathers all ruffled like that. I like his little shadow. It looks as though it should belong to another bird :)

Now that's an action shot...beautiful catch!

Great blue herons, Mary, love your Everglades photos! Hope to go there some day.
This particular bird looks like it is molting. Probably to prepare to migrate.

This is quite odd! Such a delightful, fluffy, large bird casting such a small, barely fluffy shadow! The sun must have been directly overhead!

Absolutely cool shadow shot.

Very interesting & of course, you always done a great job of chasing perfect shadow shots!

Have a nice evening!
