Birds and a butterfly

 Click image to enlarge!
Mute swans in Backa lake. Nicely backlit!

Grey heron at Djulö 
This was a rare sight. I see grey herons now and then but they keep staying on the other side of whatever water they visit. This was one of the cold weeks and all other lakes was frozen. 

Field fare having lunch outside the building I live in. Probably one of the kids living here throw the apple away. Good for the bird.

At Eriksbergs castle about 20 km from my town they have a feeding place for Mallards. 
I think this is all mallards. I did not notice any other bird. 

Finishing off with a butterfly, Banded mapwing, seen in Costa Rica 2011
It is, kind off, nice to go through old photos. Freshing up old memories. The photos are proof of what I have actually done. The brain have no possibility to fake the memories the photos show. Or ignore it as irrelevant!  If you wonder why I write this, I read a lot of science and our brains is not trustworthy. But the photos are.

  1. Hello,
    You had a nice outing with great bird sightings. That is a big flock of Mallards. Pretty shots of the Mute Swans, Gray heron and the Fieldfare. The butterfly is lovely, I enjoy looking back at old photos. Beautiful series of photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, wishing you a happy weekend! PS, thank you for the visit and comment on my blog.

  2. You had me doing a double take for a minute with that butterfly, until I realized that it was seen in Costa Rica! The heron looks like it is waiting for spring along with the rest of us!

  3. Nice to have photos to prompt our memories. The photos do truthfully remember.

  4. If I didn't have my photos, I would never remember what I saw or when! I'm usually surprised at how long ago I saw something when it seems like last year...or last month! lol Love the Heron, what a beauty!

  5. Your grey heron looks like our great blue herons. Lovely post!

  6. Lol...gotta tell you: When Bud & I argue I use photos to prove him wrong.

    Gorgeous images today. Love the backlit photo of the swans. Enjoy your week ahead, and thanks for taking time to link in.

  7. That butterfly photo is gorgeous. I love seeing all of those ducks!!

  8. The grey heron looks like he's got his feathers wrapped around him keeping warm.

  9. These are again wonderful photos of the birds and this beautiful butterfly in the sun!
