bird, Shoebill, aka Whalehead or shoe billed stork from Africa, livdes in swamps from Sudan to Zalmbia

Isn’t this just the cutest most adorable face.. looks like a big smile plastered on his/her face.  Its real, it’s called a Whale-head or Shoe-billed stork an dis found in tropical east Africa.  It can be found in large swamps from Sudan to Zambia.  It is interesting what can compel a person to want to go somewhere, this bird I’d really love to experience.  See it walk, hear how it communicates, what a wonderful morning discovery.

Swamp Art - The Ferryman's End in Eastern Ireland.  Victoruia's Way, Roundwood, Co. Wicklow, Ireland

 

This Swamp Sculpture can be found in Eastern Ireland.  It is called the Ferryman’s End. (Victoria’s WayRoundwood.co. Wicklow, Ireland)   I’ve been to swampy areas in my travels, but I have never experienced for myself some of the world known swamp lands,   I was most intrigued by this sculpture, the artist had to conceive the idea, build it, and then place it. Amazing workmanship.   Since swamps to me are just boggy areas found in low lying land and usually freeze over come the cold weather. Swamps that house alligators, crocks and life forms all year round due to the totally different climate and geography hold a fascination for me.

Swamp -Ssouth Carolina

Photo by John Hunter, 9/2005 – he canoed through the swamp in South Carolina, I’m afraid that this morning I have lost myself in the swamps.   This can happen, I was going to talk on a very different subject, blame it on the Shoe-billed stork, his smile just captured my imagination and off I went further into the swamps. =^_^= I make no apologies, the artists/photographers of these pictures did such a good job of catching the moment, preserving them for us to enjoy, that I willingly wandered from point X to point B.  My choice. … now what do you think, I found this  house, wonder if it is for rent.  I might sit a spell and delight in the moment.  Care to join me?
