This week’s Travel Photo Thursday is a shot of this beautiful bird soaring over the rice fields in Ubud. I’m not sure what kind of bird it is, but they are funny to watch in the fields. Although, the farmers dislike them, and I can understand why, since they eat the rice. This one had been shooed off by a worker in the rice paddy.

Ubud is a busy little town, and part of its charm is the fact that within five minutes you can leave the hustle and bustle of town life and be immersed in the rice fields with the workers, the birds and other animals; a very special place, indeed.

  1. Nancie,
    It sure looks like an egret to me. You’d have to haul around one of those big 500mm lenses to get close enough for mr to ID it, though. LOL !

  2. Very cool, Nancie. I had never seen a rice paddy before….always heard of it, but never saw it.

  3. Beautiful. I always wanted to take photos on a big rice field…

  4. Love the photo .Birds are fascinating to photo well.
    Hope you like my seagull over our beach scene.

  5. A beautiful, tranquil looking image, Nancie.
    Can’t wait to see more…
