Splishing and a Splashing Grackle in St. Lucia

Grackle

Grackle in the morning light.

Ready for a bath?

Birds take baths the world over and have the same fun doing it. Here in St. Lucia the grackle cools off. The photos were taken with a Nikon P510, f4.5  1/250 sec. ISO 320.

Raining bath water.

Not bad for an entry level camera? Enlarge the photos to show the quality of the camera in getting clear, crisp images. I left the big camera and expensive lenses at home and traveled with the small, lightweight P510.

The bird bath was right outside the room where I was staying. I was outside on the veranda playing bird paparazzi. Poor girl got no privacy.

Look at her go, water was flying. What a beautiful morning in the Caribbean.

  1. You take such beautiful pictures! I can see almost every single drop of water being splashed around. I saw your St. Lucia Scenic Views post also. Looks lovely!
