Favorites

It's been ages since I went out and took any wildlife photos, so much so that I decided to share some of my old favorite shots from way back. You may remember seeing some of these and if you do, hopefully you will enjoy them the second time around.

I am amazed you managed to get such clear shots of these wee animals.

These are all lovely Denise! The first is so majestic! The last one is a picture postcard!

I love the duck with the babies - that would make a cute header too.

Great variety of photos. I like the first one the best with the mama and her babies following her.

All excellent pictures, especially the one of Mom and her little family marching behind her. I like your header picture as well.

Wow - each photo is a masterpiece with the first one as your crowning glory.

Rose said...

That second shot would make a wonderful banner photo...but I enjoyed all of them.

I think I'm loosing it Denise, I was sure I'd left a comment here earlier. Anyway, great bird picture. The blogosphere has definately brought ornithology to my desk here at work.

Great shots - all. Loved the mother duck with her brood.

I don't remember seeing any of these, but even if I had, they are worth seeing again!! Beautiful and inspirational shots!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Gorgeous pictures, Denise. I always love seeing 'favorites'--even if I have seen them before. Wish I knew all of the names of your birds...

Hugs,
Betsy

I just love that Make Way for Ducklings photo. It's so adorable. Gosh! I haven't seen ducks in such a long time. Beautiful photos, Denise.

They're all beautifully captured! I like each of them.

Jean said...

All your images are special but I really liked the Hawk!

The bird on my blog is a White-Throated Sparrow. They do look very similar to a Chipping Sparrows.

Hi Denise, This is my first time visit after you left a comment on our blog when you visited recently (thefrogandpenguinn.blogspot.com). I had a wonderful time reading about how you and Gregg met. Your interests very much profile my own - photography, spending time alone or with friends and meeting others. And, we are both living in Virginia as transplants of a sort. "Grenville" and I relocated to the VA eastern shore from NJ. I think you may be living in the "other" part of the state, perhaps closer to DC. Please stop in again anytime for a visit and I plan to do the same!

Carver said...

I love all of the wild life photographs. The last one is so sweet with the couple. Great shots!

A Brit in Tennessee said...

Awesome pictures Denise, some of these I have seen but not all.
The Duck and her ducklings are just precious, also the blue birds.
Thank you for sharing with us.
Hugs,

Thanks for visiting me, Denise, and your kind comments. I'm really not in the mood for blogging at the moment but visiting you and seeing your wonderful birds has really lifted my spirits. It's comforting to look at beauty when there is so much sadness and destruction closer to home.

Johnny Nutcase said...

ah these are so great, Denise! I love 'em all but I think the black and white and the duck family by the fence are my favorite. Great series!

A lovely collection of wildlife. I love mother duck and the babies.
