Twin peaks II




The first one was with buzzards.  These old willows are deteriorating with each storm...

Wow, first time I see trees are growing that fast. Taller and taller they get. :)Just kidding. Fun images.

Melodie said...

I just love those white birds!

Arija said...

Great perch, dead trees have their uses . . .

Lois Evensen said...

Those are such perfect lookout positions for the birds and perfect sets for your pictures. The dark background is great for photographing white birds. Nice.

Deb said...

great shots...

Sandra said...

I am waiting on triple peaks next. try for 3 hawks. LOL

Roan said...

Hopefully they will come back to grace the dead tree many more times. They are beauties.

Woody said...

The egrets are so elegant. Their long, skinny legs look odd on top of those trees.

Jan n Jer said...

Great shot...love those birds. I see your still in the oven there. Hope you catch a break soon!

Joe said...

They kind of look like white buzzards with long beaks.

Millie said...

Very pretty birds!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

They are beautiful birds but they have an awful song, Squawk.

Nice shots of beautiful birds! Resting parallel on their vantage points is interesting.

I like the title very much. Fine shots of these impressive looking birds. I like the close in and farther way approach. Nicely done.

Farm Girl said...

They look really cool sitting up there on the top of those trees.
Have your fall birds started arriving? Do you still have Priscilla and Elvis?

heyBJK said...

Cool shots, T! The egret on the right looks like he's trying to hide...if I scrunch down real far they won't see me. :-)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Let me guess...from up there is the best view of watching WW3 - Gelding vs. Tex?

Feral Female said...

Don't you love how dead snags are such favorite perches for amazing birds?

EG Wow said...

I love it that there are two perched way up there!

Chatty Crone said...

I wondered if those first ones were buzzards and they were. Very interesting!

bon bon said...

Ellie said...

You do get to shoot some unusual shots. Oh and I really like your new profile shot!

Louise said...

Just beautiful. But, here's hoping you get a real storm, soon, with loads of rain.

sharon said...

Egrets are fascinating birds. I like it when you see flocks all together in one area. sea of white!

What do you think they waiting for?
Maybe breakfast, served on a platter, by Texwis Girl!
xo, misha

Sharon said...

I think they are waiting for the rain. They are probably chatting about it, while they sit there atop the deadwood.

I like your new avatar!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

This is very timely...I had a 7-8 year old patient this week ask me, 'why was the bird wearing lingerie?'
It was Victoria's-egret...
By the way, I like the twin peaks!!

grammie g said...

Hi Teresa...there is something about these birds that makes me want to laugh when I see then all hunched up like the one on the right! lol
Nice!!
Grace

Cindy said...

WOW! That's really cool, seeing two of them like that.

Catherine said...

The one in the back looks like an old grump--like he is saying get out of here with that camera!

Country Mouse Studio said...
