A poser…an heron !

This evening….at the seashore…as we had our coffee..saw an young heron…land on an old abandoned fishing boat …right in front of us…was there for some time…he was not at all bothered about anything else…groomed himself well…we got some wonderful pics in different poses…as the tide brought in lots of fish…to the shore…the young boy flew away…

This is a photo blog…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And…this was just before…he dipped into the ocean…for a catch…

 

Seashore….& the shore birds…

Evenings at shore…is so beautiful…the high waves….the wetsands…the shells all over…schol of fish…cool breeze…and many shore birds…

Most trying to catch…fish…their supper time…

Just watching them with a cup of coffee…is so relaxing…

A few days back…in an evening we saw so many varieties…

This is a photo blog…

 

 

A tern

 

Egret…

 

Seagulls

 

Going back home

 

Plovers…for a walk..

 

Evening lights…

 

A striated heron…concentrating on a sardine..!

 

A kingfisher….

 

Different versions of heron…

 

A green shank

 

A school of fish…

 

The boss…a heron

 

And this is how the day ends…

 

A swallow….

when a swallow flies….it flies with all happiness..

In my list of things that make me happy….swallows will be in top 5….

Those round..& round …circles….in swift movements….

Those low lilting chirps..,

Any time ….a soothing sight..,

In an afternoon….with a very blue skies….and a pristine half moon …a swallow….is a happy vision

Blue bird in blue mountains

Happiness is a blue bird….

There are birds…then there is a blue bird…

Every time we go birding…whatever the terrain is my constant wish is for a blue bird…

Had seen a bee eater with bit of blue…a kingfisher in this part of the world…

Then one morning…a blue rock thrush flew into our balcony…and came for many days…before he flew back to wherever he came from…

Last weekend ….drove up the mountains…and to sight a singing blue thrush…high up in the valley …is what #littlejoys are about…

Far away on a tall tree…with berries…and few sparrows for company…the blue bird sang for a long time..

Wonder what he was singing..for whom he was singing…whatever it was…for whoever it was…I found it very soothing…

Here are pics of that beautiful Mr.blue…in various poses….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The only shot from the back….

 

 

A little poem…

 

Simply writing…

I love to write #haiku…

Simple,sweet, but sometimes just those few words..is difficult to arrange…

One has to be in mood for it…

Issa …basho are my eternal favourite's …

When I want to read something simple,but that which makes lot of sense…I read haiku…

It is so heart warming…soothing..

This evening…I got into haiku mood…

Three of them…& a little poem

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterday's full moon…weirdly made me blind to many things…it was so bright…the rest were non existent in the sky…..

Feels good …to scribble…

Fly me to the moon

 

An almost full moon…a bluish evening skies…a gurgling ocean …and flocks of noisy seagulls…

An evening…one wishes to see always…

Last evening…was one such…as the cool sea breeze blew…the pristine moon rose…higher…& higher…

And in the opposite end…the sun began to set…and it was time for the seagulls..to fly back to their home..

 

 

The light blue skies…getting darker by the minute…flocks & flocks of gulls..terns…getting back home…

Some of them…flying high up almost near the moon…& that is a great photo moment…

 

 

The bright moon..little twinkling stars…gulls seems disinterested …they just keep on flying….

…No ladder needs the bird…

But just the blue skies…

To situate its wings

Nor any leaders baton…

As it sings…Emily Dickinson..

 

She is so damn right…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just a evening …to watch the simplest…beautiful things…& feel better

 

As we left…the moon shone brightly…

 

I somehow remembered a nursery rhyme …which I sang..later my kid…

I see the moon…

And the moon see's me

God bless the moon…

& God bless me…

 

Thank god…for #littlejoys
