    I know this anecdote is overrated but seriously "pictures don't do it justice". It's beyond mesmerising in person.

    January 2019 marks my 10 years in wildlife and sports photography.

    It has been an interesting ride with its ups and downs. If I were to do this again I would have done it differently.

    A Miracle in Hello

    A Miracle in Hello, tells a story of four troubled high school students from a posh-school whose lives were changed after an unfortunate incident and a classroom brawl that sent them to the Principal’s office and on to the hands of a new and mysterious teacher.

    The teacher’s unconventional ways, frowned upon by some, eventually transformed and touched the students’ lives and of those around them. His cool vibe, strong faith, compassion and positive influence started a friendship in the unlikeliest of circumstance.

    With this teacher’s guidance and care, friendship grows, so did the students’ faith, understanding and love for one another and for the world. Their renewed spirit were affirmed when they realize the real identity of their mysterious teacher.

    [​IMG]Great egret (Ardea alba) by Paolo Dolina, on Flickr



    The great egret (Ardea alba), also known as the common egret, large egret, or (in the Old World) great white egret[2] or great white heron[3][4][5] is a large, widely distributed egret, with four subspecies found in Asia, Africa, the Americas, and southern Europe. Distributed across most of the tropical and warmer temperate regions of the world, it builds tree nests in colonies close to water.

    Laughing Gulls (Leucophaeus atricilla)
    by Paolo Dolina, on Flickr

    If one has ever heard a group of Laughing Gulls (Leucophaeus atricilla) calling, the English Name of this species is no surprise. They do indeed have a cackling laugh-like call. During the breeding season this is a black hooded gull with white crescents above and below the eyes; above it is mid-grey and white below including the tail. The primaries lack any white mirrors, and only show small white tips, so the wing pattern is a rather simple one for a gull. What is distinctive is the very long and drawn-out look of this species. The bill is long, and even looks to droop; the head, neck and body are also long. But what stands out are the very long legs, often looking like they stand on stilts, and the very long wings. In flight the long and skinny wings are distinctive. It is closely related to the Franklin’s Gull (Leucophaeus pipixcan) and shares many similarities in plumage with that species, although it may in fact be much more closely related to the largely dark Grey Gull (Leucophaeus modestus) and Lava Gull (Leucophaeus fuliginosus). Laughing Gulls are found in coastal regions with warmer water from Mexico to Peru on the Pacific, and the N United States to N Brazil on the Atlantic coasts. They are migratory but these migrations are complex. For example, they are found throughout the year on the United States Atlantic Coast, although northernmost ones retreat, while in the Lesser Antilles they are only present during the summer, the breeding season.
