Big Bird Odds & Ends

January 19, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

You may well be tired, by now, of Big Bird images.  These are the last of the "season" which was remarkably short ... this has been a trend the last three or four years.  First up are some images of Big Bird that didn't make the earlier posts:

Circling to land in the "good" light:

 

Detail of Big Bird's feathers ...

 

Getting a little closer ...

 

In black & white ...

 

I call this image the "X" Factor ...

 

There's almost always another crowd competing for the same meal.  Here's some them.

A Great Egret crossing the channel against the sun ...

 

The ever-present Gull looking for an opportunity ...

 

And, the army of cormorants.  Here's a small group with a head throw by one ...

 

A Landing. A mini-X factor?  ... 

 

Cormorants are not graceful fliers like Big Bird. They are built to swim underwater to catch their food rather than dive for it from above like Big Bird.  Their take-offs and landings are longer, more labored, and not nearly as graceful. 

Intensity #1. Just getting airborne ...

 

Intensity #2,  Another  ... 

 

I hope you enjoyed  this mini Big Bird series and, as  always, thank you for taking the time to look and comment!
