Week #51 brings us to birds with stripes, spots or freckles. I thought of this challenge because I was a little freckle faced kid.
Limpkins are brown and white birds with a very loud piercing call. They are a tropical wetland bird that resembles herons and egrets, however they are more closely related to rails and cranes.
Long-legged birds tend to have a pronounced strut when they walk. Long legs are something I know nothing about since I’m only 5′ 1″ tall. I related much better to the short-legged bird challenge.
Macro photography is close-up photography of small subjects. Mostly bugs and flowers get the spotlight, but today we are doing it on Bird Weekly. Macro is an extreme close-up, but for this post, any close-up will do. I know many of you don’t have a macro lens and that is okay.
