Three Stages
These black-necked stilts are among the most beautiful of birds. Here, they are in various stages of resting. This photo was taken in SE Texas.
Fish Hook

When I first saw this alligator in SE Texas, I was surprised that his mouth was wide open. I thought of Little Red Riding Hood, “My, grandma, what big teeth you have!”, but was soon saddened to see that a fish hook was embedded in his tongue, one of many negative effects on animals who share the planet with humans.

Mr. Beautiful
Mr. Beautiful
This gorgeous wild turkey came daily to my back yard in Rocklin, CA, where I feed the birds. He was not afraid of me, nor I of him. He let me get quite close, would have eaten from my hand if I had been prepared.
I captured on film this graceful great egret who lived in a rookery in SE Texas. The rookery was on an island and contained thousands of birds of all kinds. The waters surrounding the rookery provided protection for the birds as they were filled with alligators.
