A Snowy Egret rests on the railing of a local pier; watching the crowd stroll by and hoping for a treat from nearby anglers.

 

These are medium-sized herons with long, thin legs and long, slender, bills. Their long, thin neck sets the small head well away from the body.

 

Adult Snowy Egrets are all white with a black bill, black legs, and yellow feet. They have a patch of yellow skin at the base of the bill. Immature Snowy Egrets have duller, greenish legs.

Snowy Egrets wade in shallow water to spear fish and other small aquatic animals. While they may employ a sit-and-wait technique to capture their food, sometimes they are much more animated, running back and forth through the water with their wings spread, chasing their prey.

 

Snowy Egrets nest colonially, usually on protected islands, and often with other small herons. They concentrate on mudflats, beaches, and wetlands, but also forage in wet agricultural fields and along the edges of rivers and lakes.

 

A beautiful, graceful small egret, very active in its feeding behavior in shallow waters. Known by its contrasting yellow feet, could be said to dance in the shallows on golden slippers.

The species was slaughtered for its plumes in the 19th century, but protection brought a rapid recovery of numbers, and the Snowy Egret is now more widespread and common than ever. Its delicate appearance is belied by its harsh and raucous calls around its nesting colonies.

Sometime happens to find some people so interesting and fascinating that is impossible not to dedicate them a burst of photos. This girl is one of the refugees in Leh, Ladakh, northern India, she was sitting in the market with her mother, begging for money. I was far away from her, armed with my zoom when I decided to frame just her face while she was looking away, looking something else than a photographer with a big camera. Guess I got my photo, or not?

Hello my amazing Flickr friends !

Today is a green day at Color my World Daily and lets celebrate with another green picture ! And as we all know, celebrating is better with people. So here we go, let me introduce some new tiny people I got. They are from China and since they were traveling in very difficult conditions for the last few weeks (months ?? Honestly it took forever… I almost forgot about ordering my tiny people !! ) they are a little bit pale …

 

But dont you worry, they aren’t sick (they all tested negative for Covid-19 and they had to go through a very, very complexe disinfection process !!), they just lack some vitamin D … and maybe a touch of paint…

But for now, lets just welcome our new « ghost -white » guests by showing them our kindness and support !! Happy green day !!

 

Who misses having new people over ? I do !

FYI: in Montreal, due to sanitary measures, we aren't allowed to gather with people from other households (even if they are your family) in private spaces...

  

Mucho, mucho amor for you all !! Have a beautiful day and see you later!!

 

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments / favs/ general support / happy thoughts!! Stay safe and well!! And see you soon on Flickr !!

We made it to the Maori Pa site and this is looking back the way we had come. Our lockdown is now level 2 and driving around is allowed. This beach was out of bounds to us for 6 weeks in Levels 3 and 4 :( Just a pity winter is now getting very close here. Have a good weekend and thanks for visiting down here in the south of New Zealand.

These are related to the comical Rain Frogs that peep when you disturb them. These are very laid back though.

Getting around on Tonle Sap. The lake is just SE of Siem Reap in Cambodia. There’s a pretty large class distinction between the people living in house boats and those in the stilted homes on the shores of the lake. The villagers living in floating houses on the lake are generally those of Vietnamese descent who are not allowed to own land. These people are basically discriminated against because they can’t prove their Cambodian birth and have no ID cards. Because of this, their living standards are significantly lower than the villagers living in stilted houses who are allowed to own land and farm to supplement their income during the dry season.
