National Siblings Day

April 10th is National Siblings Day and although I don't have any myself, I know others I've posted some sibling photos to enjoy.

This first one is a pair of green herons we saw in the nest while in Florida.  They just weren't getting along well at all...much bickering and fighting.  

That reminded me of my own dear grandchildren, who occasionally share a different point of view but mainly get along great.  Judging from the elbow in her sisters neck and unnatural smile I believe this shot just broke up a dispute over some food.  That's probably what those birds were locking beaks over also.

This isn't my photo, but is one of many from the vast data banks of the internet.  This shows sibling love at it's best.

Long Live the Queen of Only Children


  1. Thank you. I had no idea that we had a national sibling day. I had one brother for 68 years. There's nothing quite like a brother's love. I would love to have 68 more years.

    Your photos are fabulous. Those birdies are exquisite!!! I don't often get the opportunity to photograph babies in the nest or unusual looking birds.

    You have a great day, hugs, Edna B.

  2. While reading your siblings post, the story of you babysitting my brothers and giving them knives to settle their bickering comes to mind:)
