The second in our series of It’s a Wild World articles features a selection of beautiful bird photography. Having said ‘beautiful’, the bird world consists of some of the most beautiful looking and some of the strangest looking of God’s creatures, and here we have attempted to showcase a mix of both. All birds look as they do for a reason, it may be camouflage or the males may be extremely colorful to attract females.
Wherever you live in the world, almost without exception you can look out of your window and spot birds. I was fortunate enough last year to see a bird of prey swoop and attempt to catch a baby blackbird. My car engine distracted the hawk for a few seconds… just long enough for the blackbird to scurry off into the long grass and escape – lucky blackbird indeed!
