Watch the birdy

Mourning Dove in the Afternoon.

Southern Bou Bou.

Lousy shot, but such infrequent visitors are these birds (four times in fifteen years) that when I heard its distinctive monosyllabic call I was only too happy to get any sort of shot.

      1. Hello Ark, I have used that excuse a few times, I still got slapped. πŸ˜†πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜…πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜Ž But seriously, have you ever counted up how many different species of birds and critters at Ark’s spot? You must have a bunch of hard drives to store all these pictures. Hugs

          1. Hello Ark. And Chickens, cats, and dogs! Scorpion? Aren’t they supposed to be really dangerous? I wonder how spiders and scorpions get along? Hugs


  1. Sometimes you just do what you have to do. I’ve got tons of pictures that I just took to be sure I got the subject, in case it departed. It looks just fine to me.

    1. I began cataloging everything around the end of 2015. I do it month by month, so in truth I cannot say the Bou Bou has not visited before, of course, but in my files I have only photographed it on four separate occasions.

      1. That’s evidence. πŸ™‚ Curious, do you use a catalogue programme? Linking a catalogue file to photos? a) I have too many photos, though “filed” in folders and I can’t remember all. b) I would like to catalogue the Art we have in the house, product of many years of travels and collecting, but I can’t seem to think of a simple efficient system… Can’t put the pix of each object on an Excell or Word file. Too heavy.
