It is well known that we Portuguese once sailed the seven seas searching for new lands, wealth and adventures.
We were brave in those days and gave the world new worlds!

Luckily I don’t have to sail the big oceans on a small ship to sea the wonders of our world …
No Sir, I just need to check with Mr. Tom, the finest host there is, for a trip around the world with SKY WATCH TOURS and with a click here, a click there I am quickly in the USA, England, Brazil, Italy, China, Australia, Finland … well, everywhere.

And on each stop I come to see a little marvel of our world under a great sky!
Hope you can come and see my piece of the sky at lenses & visions

Gosh, these are stunning images. I wish I had a waxwing here.

I think this is the best Sky Watch Friday yet. The things I have seen are very encouraging and the photography is spot on.

I really admire your photography skills and your critical eye for composition, lighting and texture.

Great post Kerri.
I really love that Vulture, and what a neat place for him to survey his domain.
Happy SKW and Happy 4th.

Andrea said...

What pretty bright blue skies in the first two. And the birds add such beauty in front of the sky. Well done.

bobbie said...

Your birds are so beautiful - even the vulture. And the sky is the perfect backdrop.

Hilary said...

Kerri, you always take the most incredible shots. How and where do you find these wonderful bird AND get them to pose for you?

The last reminds me of an old cartoon where two vultures are together high up on a tree branch and one of them says "Patience my @$$, I'm going to kill something!"

Yeah.. they're a bit intimidating. ;)

Great catch for SWF! This reminds me the quote... "God and Nature first made us what we are, and then out of our own created genius we make ourselves what we want to be. Follow always that great law. Let the sky and God be our limit and Eternity our measurement".... Happy weekend! Mine's up too hope you can drop by..

What beautiful shots you got! Those birds are just stunning against that vivid blue sky!

Those first two shots against the blue sky are terrific! Really beautiful birds, both of them. I like the spooky vulture, too and that looks like a great place for him :-)

Hi Kerri,
I somehow missed getting here yesterday. I love these images - so crisp and clear.

Hi Kerri
I came back to see how your Sky Watch had gone on and realised when I came here last I did not leave a comment.. what a egg-head I am... Ha
I am delighted to see these as like yourself I am a bird fan.. and a sky fan.. so for me and I'm many many others these are picture perfect.
