I hope that all is well with the world today. It is the weekend again, and although that means much to some, for main stream America it is just another chance to catch up on everything we got behind on during the week. Not much has been happening in my life, and even less has been happening in the photo worthy opportunities area. So this week, not to be discouraged, I grabbed my camera and set out to find something/anything to photograph. Florida is home to some pretty weird and unique plants and animals, especially birds, so it was not long before I stumbled on my first photo op. Here are a few quick clicks of a pretty sizable flock of vultures that I decided were worthy of an impromptu shoot. (A few other birds too).
Flock of Vultures
Winged and Bowing Vulture
Anhinga…..AKA Snake-Bird or Water Turkey
White Ibis wading
Pair of Muscovy Ducks
Lucky for you, I quickly exhausted my camera battery on this flock of vultures because yes, I forgot to charge my batteries before embarking on my journey. So I had to sulk home and see if I could make anything good out of any of my photos. Oh sure I could have just stayed at home and posted the Colorado photographs I have been promising, but I did not. Who knew blogging would actually take time and effort?
I will however get to them soon, very soon, but tonight let me leave you with these few late evening images of my favorite Royal Poinciana tree blooms. I do not know what it is about this forest beauty that keeps me coming back, but I hope you will accept them for what they are: A gift from me to you.
