Great Animal and Bird Pictures

12 Nov 2016 10:39

Hi everyone,

I am amazed how popular the Beautiful Picture thread has become. I started it as I find looking at beautiful pictures has a calming effect on me and I hoped it would other people too.

As I have just found a site where they have loads of wonderful animal pictures, I thought I would start a new thread with the title as above. I have allready put some on the Pictures thread and found they well well liked so here goes with a bumber selection and I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do.

I'm just hanging out, watching the world go by.

Igenuity of animals.

I had never thought how difficult it is for Girraffes to drink. Looks like they are on tripods ha ha.

Just giving you all a wave.

Which do you like best; Small, Meduim or Large size?

What wonderful eyes.

A colourful bird.

I hope you like todays Bumbper selection, Brian

Hi Hazel

Chooks and ducks always look like they are hanging around in groups plotting (to escape or gossiping). They are very entertaining and definately look like the descendents of dinosaurs, there is more evidence becoming available that many dinosaurs had feathers. I'm glad my chickens are not 15 feet high and weigh in at 5 tons! Run.....    Kim

Thanks Carol, Hazel and Kim. Kim I love the humour about your chickens being 15 feet high; I would be running too.

Something fishy going on here.

brian, love your new animal and birds thread,  ooooow i do love barn owls, we used to have one flying around at our old house late at night it would swoop down and land on a really high lamp post just across the road infront of open fields, would get excited when we heard its cry and rush to the front window, they are beautyfull, they look so cuddly from afar, my husband held one once at the paignton beach front festival, he had to put a glove on, sharp claws, but wonderful...thanks. have a good day , off to the shops in the rain, boooooo    ! !    ..x.....cococat

Hi Hazel

The 'moggie on the table' was taken a few years ago and yes was ours (the table not the cat!!). This cat was one of two who would regularly visit hubby during his illness and I got up one morning to find it 'sheltering' under the table roof as it was raining.  With his good deed at keeping hubby company during his long days I could not be cross with him though not quite what I had expected to see on a wild bird table ha ha.

The cat still shoots into the house on occasion, has a look round, enjoys having its tummy rubbed and then wanders off.  Not too easy now the patio doors are closed to the weather though.

Hope you doing okay.  Jules xx
