Kolob Colors Revisited

I promised more images from my Kolob Terrace trip.  Sorry it took so long getting these out there.  img_8348-copy

I love the juxtaposition of the light yellows and greens against the dark green.

Weekly’s Photo Challenge: Birds of a Feather

I’m participating in LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s Challenge is: Birds of a Feather!

 

Do you remember the old joke? Why did the chicken cross the road?  To which there are a plethora of answers.  However, the question that needs to be asked is why are the ducks crossing the sidewalk?CRW_0090

Of course, there can be several answers to that one.  Just don’t try to figure it out because geese just don’t make sense sometimes.

 

Here is a strange fellow.  Ever seen a duck like this?  I guess you could call this a strange duck.

Yes, that is a tuft on his head and it’s natural.  Not sure what type it is.

Here are some ducks lounging on the edge of the pool taking in the sights.

Of course here is the Mallard Duck sunning himself.

Here are some rare ducks that are native to the wetlands of Las Vegas, Nevada.  I’m just not sure what type they are.

Here is a type of goose, just not sure what type.

Ducks do have friends.  They are peacocks.  Birds of a feather do flock together.

Here is another look at the peacock.

Anyone hungry?  Although it’s not quite Thanksgiving yet, this one would make a family very satisfied.

And of course, just for fun.  This bird isn’t real, but it represents something that is much bigger than any of the birds above, it’s our National Symbol of Freedom.  The Bald Eagle.
