“Have you heard the news ~ the world goes on by twos.” 🐾

two spiderwebs copyI love spiderwebs dripping with dew. These two on either side of a provocatively stained post, are my nod to Halloween.

Two young Black-Tail bucks grazed in the dunes one morning at Long Beach.

It’s mushroom and toadstool time in the Pacific Northwest. Though lovely to look at and photograph, Amanita muscaria, commonly known as fly agaric, is considered poisonous, but not deadly. They contain psychoactive chemicals, and have a long history of use in Asia and Northern Europe.

This pair of Western Gulls (Laurus occidentals) looked like they were having an important tête-à-tête on their driftwood perch. I make it a practice to photograph from a distance, and don’t allow Jello to chase birds at the beach – well sometimes the crows – but not the shorebirds and eagles!

Immature ~one-year Bald Eagles, watched as Jello and I circled past. What magnificent birds they are!

Version 2

A mature pair of Bald Eagles. They mate for life, and the female is larger than the male.

I’ll close with one of my favorite photo’s of a couple walking the beach, as Sanderling and other shorebirds migrated through.

🐾 When I read Tina’s theme for this week’s Lens-Artists challenge, I thought about the tune, Two by Two,  from Tony Bennet’s, 1965 album, Songs for the Jet Set. A lifetime favorite.

    These are great Lindy. I Can’t believe u actually got a pair of Juvies as well as mature eagles. And the couple walking in your last image is really terrific

    Wonderful post, Lindy. Loved the two spider webs. What’s the likelihood! The couple on the beach surrounded by birds is stunning. ❤

  3. Leya says:

    Lovely couples – the eagles are stunning, but my favorite is the last one! A beautiful meeting humans – birds.

  4. susurrus says:

    A great series of couples. The couple on the beach must have been lost in each other not to turn round when they heard the birds.

  5. JohnRH says:

    Great selections. Love the eagles. Those ‘shrooms do look deadly!

  6. WHat a neat capture of those immature Bald Eagles!
