The painted stork (Mycteria leucocephala) is a large wader in the stork family. It is found in the wetlands of the plains of tropical Asia south of the Himalayas in the Indian Subcontinent and extending into Southeast Asia. Their distinctive pink tertial feathers of the adults give them their name. They forage in flocks in shallow waters along rivers or lakes. They immerse their half open beaks in water and sweep them from side to side and snap up their prey of small fish that are sensed by touch. As they wade along they also stir the water with their feet to flush hiding fish. They nest colonially in trees, often along with other waterbirds. The only sounds they produce are weak moans or bill clattering at the nest. They are not migratory and only make short distance movements in some parts of their range in response to changes in weather or food availability or for breeding. Like other storks, they are often seen soaring on thermals.

Building a nest is hard work!


My Photoblog- My Third Eye...!

Happy new week.

We can finally enjoy the spring here.

I woke up to a white world of snow as the Arctic front keeps on affecting what was looking to be spring weather.

So I thought I'd post something from a road trip in warmer times. This is the Painted Hills in Oregon - truly a sight to behold!

During breeding season, Painted Redstart are primarily found in Arizona and New Mexico. They're also found in Southern California and a few counties in Texas (Brewster, Presidio). I look for them at higher elevations in oak canyons. They winter in Central America.

Painted Stork has a heavy yellow beak with a down-curved tip that gives it a resemblance to an ibis. The head of the adult is bare and orange or reddish in colour. The long tertials are tipped in bright pink and at rest they extend over the back and rump. There is a distinctive black breast band with white scaly markings. The band continues into the underwing coverts and the white tips of the black coverts give it the appearance of white stripes running across the underwing lining.

The Painted Desert is a United States desert of badlands in the Four Corners area running from near the east end of Grand Canyon National Park and southeast into Petrified Forest National Park. It is most easily accessed in the north portion of Petrified Forest National Park. The Painted Desert is known for its brilliant and varied colors, that not only include the more common red rock, but also shades of lavender.


Le "Painted Desert" est un désert de badlands des États-Unis dans la région de Four Corners qui s'étend de l'extrémité est du parc national du Grand Canyon et au sud-est du parc national de Petrified Forest. Il est le plus facilement accessible dans la partie nord du parc national de Petrified Forest. Le Painted Desert est connu pour ses couleurs brillantes et variées, qui incluent non seulement la roche rouge la plus commune, mais aussi des nuances de lavande.

Thank you for looking!

I don't want summer to end without posting a butterfly. Here is a Painted Lady, and as you can see it was well aware that I was taking its photograph. How lucky we are to be able to observe with our macro lens their tiny lives.


Butterflies have been the inspiration of so many fairy tales and fantastic stories, and there are so many more things that I can say about them, but for now I'm going to stop there :)


Something interesting about this butterfly:

Photography is one of my passions, and nature photography is my favorite.


I have been in Explore for more that a hundred times, and it is an awesome experience to have your photos showcased in such a special way.


I thank your for coming today, for leaving a comment, and make a favorite of yours this photo, (if that is the case) thanks again!


The best part of this forum is the contacts and friends that I have made over the years, that have the same passion for this art that is called photography!

After many hours and a few hundred images at very high ISO at a blind I was able to salvage a few images.

The markings of the Australian painted lady are similar to the Northern Hemisphere painted lady, Vanessa cardui.

A pity that they are not perched closer together and that he looks so grumpy. Taken in Florida last February.

Hello everyone,


This is a Painted Turtle, both literally and figuratively. After all, just the name of Painted Turtle gave me license to have fun, that, plus it's Sliders Sunday. Happy Sliders Sunday! HSS!


I used a combo of DDG and Topaz Studio for editing and effects.


Thanks a million for stopping by and for leaving me a comment. I do love hearing from you!

After the processing, this song popped up in my head:

'Paint It Black' by The Rolling Stones.

The first to lines are:

""I see a red door and I want it painted black.

No colours anymore, I want them to turn black.""


Sweet memories of Schiermonnikoog ;-))

Happy weekend!

I could of found a dozen areas I could zoom and crop to make some superb abstract. I decided to leave the view to show off the rock striations.

The Painted Dessert and the Petrified Forest overlap but the painted dessert goes for miles and the roads can take you up to the Grand Canyon. I forgot which section this was but sure was mesmerizing!
