More Florida Sunsets, Etc.....!...
Here are some more Florida photographs.
They are particularly poignant now, with all the oil spilling in the gulf.
The beautiful oceans
and my beloved Pelicans are in danger.
It both saddens and disgusts me.
I hope we can solve it soon.
Here is a Pelican taking off:
Ahhh....to be on that sailboat, right now.....
He's asking--B.P oil....how could you do this to us?:
Golden delightful evening:
My friend: Howie, the Ibis:
( I forgot to tell you the story about Howie. The local fisherman trained them to eat leftover bait and meat where we stayed. Having some lunchmeat, we treated Howie off and on during our stay and he came and took it right out of our hand. Except.....one day we ran out and my husband was reading a book by the pool barefoot. Howie came up and pecked at his baby toe...thinking it was a sausage!) LOL I never saw my husband jump up sooo fast before!)
Orange clouds over the sea:
A pelican making a splash:
(I absolutely LOVE their large wings and enormous wingspan~!)
Dramatic clouds over the ocean:
Sky on fire!:
I am never at a loss of things to photograph
at the Gulf....
I only hope this oil spill will be solved soon
and that all of this beauty
is not lost....
I am sad, horrified, angry, and hopeful all at the same time
that we will be able to find a way to remedy this tragic situation as soon as humanly possible.
