One of Stone Creek cattle egrets is looking for a herd to join. We have hundreds of them if not thousands since we are surrounded by cattle and horse ranches.

Just downloaded it to docs and then posted it

It's an interesting bird you'll see hundreds of them in the pasture with the cattle, riding on the cattle's back and a couple of pound bird walking among the 800 lb cattle like they are part of the herd.

Does your camera have a sufficient telephoto lens setting to get photos of that - the bird on a cow's back could be a prizewinner - you could call it The Cowbird Rides Again.

4.1.5  Kavika   replied to  Buzz of the Orient @4.1.4    2 months ago

I have a cell phone camera which is the latest one available. The telephoto option is pretty good and I'm sure that a person who is more of a photographer than I am could get even better photos than I get. 

What I've noticed with the birds is at times you cannot get anywhere close to them and at other times you can get fairly close to them, it seems to have something to do with how the cattle react to a human around them.

Evening..

Was ANZAC day here y'day..a very strong and powerful bond between Australia, New Zealand and Turkey, who in WW1 was our enemy..

It was ours and the Kiwis baptism of fire in a losing battle at Gallipoli against the Turks..

Due to a huge stuff up by the Brits we lost thousands back in 1915, but it has forged an unbreakable bond between our three countries which to this day the three of us still have the greatest respect for...

Many countries don't grasp or understand how we can celebrate this event, but for our ANZACs a legion was born which we carry through to this day..

Where it all started.. Gallipoli, Turkey.. April 25th 1915..

Lest we forget...🇦🇺🇳🇿🇹🇷

I have the highest respect for my Commonwealth brethren of Australia and New Zealand, but the only Turkey I have respect for is what people eat at Thanksgiving.  I had a good friend in Toronto who was Armenian.

 In 1990 when I was living in Australia the government arranged for a plane load of Gallopili vets flow to Turkey on the 75th anniversary of the battle and to meet with their old enemy the Turk survivors. It was a moment to remember, all of Australia watched the ceremonies on TV.  It was quite a sight to see once enemies in one of the hardest battles of WWI embracing and reliving that battle as friends.

Names like ''Lone Pine'' will stir the memories of all ANZACS and Turks.

The Battle for Lone Pine: Four Days of Hell at the Heart of Gallipoli.

Or, John Simpson Kirkpatrick and his donkey who saved 300 ANZACS. 

Red and I were fortunate to see the plane off from Sydney and when it returned.

Different time, different war, different values...re the Armenians..not our battle..Gallipoli was and Turkey has our and my respect.

It's not every country that has encouraged and welcomed their enemy back on their home soil to the extent Turkey did and has for the Anzacs.

The dawn service is beamed live from Gallipoli across Australia and New Zealand each year...

I don't expect other people from other countries to understand or grasp that or what it means.. it's not their history.. it's ours...

I have been to Turkey and when people found out we were Australians or New Zealanders one of the first things they would say..

My grandfather might have fought your grandfather in the war...you are family..

Can't think of to many countries where ordinary folk off the street would welcome you and say that....

I cleaned and rescaped the 20g betta tank last weekend.

I moved the plant that was growing emersed from here to the 60g and added a variegated peace lily.

I also added a persian shield plant to the office shallow tank.

I recently read something about the Earth's rotation slowing, but it was indicated to be a very very minute slowing.  Maybe what made me think of that is when a three day weekend seems to have extended itself into a four day weekend.
