Pigeons are much maligned, but they are pretty.I love that second shot.
Some pigeons are more colourful then others.Thanks re 2nd photo.
The picture of the pigeon is superb, a species underappreciated for its beauty.
Thanks you for the compliment. It just flew there and settled itself and I shot the photo. That one is rather pretty.
The dove rest well and in its rest, poses before the camera, offering a good image.I like especially the second photo, for its magnificent reflections.Kisses
The bird behaved, I do declare it was used to humans.The reflection is nice in that photo and it had been ages since I had seen water at that time.
Beaches are awesome
My father didn't care for the beach when he was alive, so therefore I never was taken when little - but I rather like them myself Jo-Anne.
Love those reflections. And dthat is one comfortable looking pigeon.
It's quite a nice reflection - oh that bird posed for me, I'm sure :)
Looks like beautiful weather.
From memory F it was a lovely day that day.
I can see why tractors are needed, as the water looks very shallow. Pigeon looks a little cross to me.
Yes shallow and boggy in the sand I expect, then a sand bar, then the sea..Well the bird posed, and who knows, maybe they do get annoyed when people take their photo :)
Thank you for the great shots. It looks like you have nice weather
I think the weather got a little better that day back in July/winter, Martin..
What a cute picture of the pigeon! A lazy one for sure...
Yes Bill - sat itself down nice and comfortable after it's flight.
lovely photos as usual. i hope you are well.
Thank you F...yes ok thanks. Hope you are too..
I love the picture of the sky reflected in the water!And the pigeon is awfully cute:)Enjoy the weekend.
Thanks Sandra - you too.
One of my ex's uncles and his family lived at Midge Point - east of Bloomsbury, north of Mackay, and he, the uncle had a tractor for his boat. When we visited the family in the early 80s on our way back from our caravan trip to Mossman and all areas in between, it was the first time I'd seen a tractor used for that purpose, too.
They have probably been doing it for years, strange how I had never seen it till this last holiday.Thanks for telling me about your uncle having a tractor.
So pretty! I love that middle photo with the reflections, and that stretch of sand looks perfect for walking and sitting.
Be a good walk along that beach, do the legs good as the sand is soft thus hard walking.Was rather pleased with that reflection, one can't always get one when travelling all the time, have to take photos when there.
I really like this beach. And the second photo is really beautiful (and the first so nice).Hugs
Thanks orvokki - lot more beach photos to come over time.
I love sitting in the sand, and the pigeon, fantastic.
Thanks Bob - did think of a couple of people would like the pigeon and was pleased it posed for me.
The beaches up there due to the Great Barrier Reef are so bland.No surf but beware of crocodiles and get the hell off the beach if you seea sign, eh???Plus of course all the deadly jellyfish, blue bottles etc etc.I was always a bit on the VERY CAREFUL side with beaches up there,the island resorts over the reef area are much better..... at leastthere is a bit of surf.Coral and I are not the best of mates! Coral ulcers are exceedingly painful.Great photos as always - good to see that the everyday common pigeon wasa viewers highlight!Colin
The Coral is rather bleached in many areas further up north so we were told by those that had been there this year.Lots of signs around rivers regarding crocodiles, jelly fish all types signs everywhere for those at the beach along with shark warnings in some areas.Yes, many people head to the water and wonder why they got stung or bitten..Thanks re photos.There is nothing like a 'bird' :)
Lovely photos. I would love to walk along those beaches.
One day you might get down there to do just that.
The scenery and the weather are awesome!
Was good to see back in our winter.
