Goofy, weird, funny, strange animal and bird shots
« on: January 19, 2012, 11:45:35 PM »
What the heck? Maybe try a new theme and see how it goes.

Show us your "different" animal and bird shots.

Here are three to start. All shown here previously.

Praying black bear (brown phase) Waterton lakes National Park, Alberta, Canada 2008


Open wide gull .. Nova Scotia, Canada 2011


Arguing tree swallows, Coaldale, Alberta, Canada, 2010

If you watch pelicans long enough, sooner or later something funny will happen ...

Sorry .. not the best quality.

Cool topic Clive and nice catches there, with funny captions :-D ... I have to go through my pics ...

The Bow River pic is telling nicely a common feature among birds ... when bird is eg. sitting in a wig and you see bird pooping, you know that it will take off immediately. Animals are more predictable than humans ... ;-)

Chappo - that's a cracker! The RSPB has an advertising poster with a cormorant pooing on it - how the kids were amused and they all joined etc. It's not as good as this!
