Weekly Travel theme: Birds

Birds are magnificent creatures – and who would not want to be able to fly? Birds are generally difficult to catch on a photo, but sometimes I’m lucky. Some of my best opportunities for photography was at Walsrode this summer, where I had a wonderful day together with my dear old friend, Anita, at the worlds’ biggest bird park in Germany.

So, Birds is the travel theme, and I will mix Walsrode with my own garden and Scarborough.

And I can assure you… Håkan sounds exactly like a duck…Totti loves him. When Totti was newly arrived 5 years ago he had a ”Håkan” in his mouth – a toy rabbit. Unfortunatley Mille got hold of Håkan several times and there wasn’t much left of him after some weeks. Finally Santa brought Totti a new Håkan this Christmas! What joy!

    • Thank you – birds are really very special to us humans. I guess it has to do with the ability of flying, soaring up there. Something we were not meant to do.

  1. God fortsättning … A-C! Wow again, stunning birds … here. That Flamingo shot – beautiful … and the little story about ”Håkan”. I rememeber when you found the injured kite .. and how upset you were when he didn’t make it. Love the gull fight. Good luck with the New Year.

    • Unfortunately he didn’t make it. He was so well taken care of, but he couldn’t move his left wing properly, even though it wasn’t broken. Letting him go would mean a slow starving to death. I cried for some days, really. I so believed he would make it – his eyes told me about his strength. Now he’s soaring up there in other skies.
