Wildlife


There were quite a lot of birds out and about at the Wildlife World Zoo last Saturday; many kinds of ducks and lots of more colorful birds including this gorgeous macaw.  I was impressed by the variety of birds I saw there.

I hope they are all smart enough to stay away from the crocodile compound.  I'm pretty sure this fellow would make quick work of a tasty duck or two.


I have a new photo on Sharon's Sojourns today.  I'm featuring a photo from my recent trip to London.

Beautiful colours on the macaw, not sure I would want to get too close to the croc though!

That's a beautiful bird but the croc just looks sinister to me.

Excellent images from the zoo/aquarium Sharon, how cute is Mum and bub below, not so much the croc above, they're almost as scary as sharks :)The macaw is absolutely fabulous!

Incredible plumage and wonderfully captured! I wouldn't want to get too close to that croc either, it looks hungry for a meal:)

That is one colorful parrot.

Your RED bird is FAAAAABULOUS!! But the croc lurking below (even if it's just the positioning of the photos) is WAY more sinister!!
