It’s a Wild World: Outstanding Photographs of Birds
The second in our series of It's a Wild World articles features a selection of beautiful bird photography. Having said 'beautiful', the bird world consists of some of the most beautiful looking and some of the strangest looking of God's creatures, and here we have attempted to showcase a mix of both. All birds look as they do for a reason, it may be camouflage or the males may be extremely colorful to attract females.
Wherever you live in the world, almost without exception you can look out of your window and spot birds. I was fortunate enough last year to see a bird of prey swoop and attempt to catch a baby blackbird. My car engine distracted the hawk for a few seconds... just long enough for the blackbird to scurry off into the long grass and escape – lucky blackbird indeed!
Stunning Bird Photography
The most colorful birds in general, live in the hottest countries. For those of us who don't live in such climates, a seasonal robin or cardinal is a beautiful flash of red, especially when it is snowing.
Do you have a favorite bird that you are able to catch a glimpse of from where you live, either year-round or seasonally? Please share your links and opinions in the comments section below.
