Pica pica

Posted by Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 9 April 2010 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Dear friends, blog-followers or ocasional visitors,
I left for a phototrip to Crete. So I'm posting some images from last year (about the same period) for a little while. (No mosses anymore ...)
I'm not giving any further explanation on these images, but the title is the scientific name of the species so for those who are interested - see Google :-)

Please DO comment these images, but I apologize for the delayed answers I hope to catch up again about 18 april. Meanwhile I hope you can enjoy this "older" work!

Mooi 'gevangen''. De eksters zijn hier momenteel ook heel druk met de nestbouw. Prachtige sierlijke vogels.

A bird! Nice colors. Did she come to look at the mosses with you!

I'm surprised you took this all the way back in November. It must not be too cold by you at that time. By then we have dried grass, leaves, snow. Excellent closeup by the way. =)
