Week #17 challenge was Macro/Close Up shots of birds.
Disclaimer: If anyone has an issue with me using their photos in the round ups, please kindly let me know. I haven’t had anyone say anything, but I don’t want you to think I’m using your photographs for personal gain. I’m here to show what great work you are doing with your photography by showing you off in these posts.
Y’all are making it hard for me to choose a bird of the week so I’m not going to but will showcase one bird from each blogger. We had a record 16 entries plus mine this week! Woohoo! Everyone is getting a showcase this week! As Oprah would say…”You get a bird”….You get a bird”….You get a bird”! I suppose that could be a bad thing too if one used their hand gestures. LOL!
I love the close up shots. It has become one of my trademarks, if I had such a thing. The first set of participants seem to have the need to fill their empty stomachs. How can something that small eat something that large? At least the gull doesn’t eat his prey whole. The rest of these wading birds do.
Then we have an array of blues and greens here. Well, Joanne’s Mallard is in black and white, but if it was in color, we would be seeing a green head.
Owl be checking you out while you check me out!
It’s all in the eyes! The eyes are the pathway to one’s soul. Just look at these beautiful specimen! I think the developers at Angry Birds may have come across these guys a time or two for inspiration. The Hornbill didn’t even have to use mascara to have lashes like that!
I encourage you to visit their blogs and see what amazing things they have going on. If I missed your post or there was a problem with a pingback, please let me know and I will be glad to add you to the list. Remember to pingback from my post of that week and not my page. Liking my page is encouraged!
Next up: Week #18: Birds starting with an “A” in any part of their name like “American Robin or Smooth-billed Ani”. I will get this out as soon as I can today. I’m a little under the weather. Developed a sore throat 2 days ago and it hasn’t gone away. No fever, but just not feeling myself. See ya in a bit!
I look forward to seeing your creations this week!
