Florida Trip: Part FOUR (otherwise known as Florida is for the birds!)
Florida is for the Birds.
I love the birds there...and it is part of the reason I go there.
I am smitten with ALL of the tropical birds and shore birds I see.
To today, I will focus on some shots of them.
Like most folks, the Pelican is one of my favorites.
I am happy to report that after the Gulf oilspill crisis,
we did see a LOT of them again..healthy and beautiful:
I wanted to wrap him up and take him home.
(But I rather doubt he would like my upper Michigan weather!):
I wanted to PET him!:
And, even though beach folks think the seagulls are pesky, I really like them!:
Look at those BLUE peepers! Sigh. I am in LOVE!:
Another Pelican beauty:
I think these are Sandpipers:
I loved how they ran scattered on the waves' edge and back....
kind of like ME (only cuter).
Stay tuned, there will be plenty more photos from the Sunshine State
to make you long for spring and summer in your neck of the woods!!

- I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography. If you like my blog, PLEASE click on "follow this blog". Having a lot of followers reading my blog gives me incentive to continue to do photography and to continue to write. I also LOVE comments, so I encourage you to leave me a comment after you read my posts. Thanks everyone, for taking the time to read me!!
