THIS PELICAN SEEMED TO BE ENJOYING THE PERFECT DAY AS MUCH AS I WAS.
AFTER I TOOK THE FIRST IMAGE, I TOOK A LITTLE WALK AND WHEN I CAME BACK THE WATER WAS LESS “RIPPLY”…BUT THE PELICAN DIDN’T SEEM TO HAVE MOVED AT ALL!
I had just used the last bit of light from the sun to capture this image and as I walked back to settle in for the night, I could hear someone playing the last notes of Rhapsody In Blue on a clarinet….serenading the sunset…too perfect.
“DO YOU SEE MY LEG IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BUBBLE?”
SNOWBIRDS ARE WHAT THE LOCALS IN FLORIDA CALL THE NORTHERNERS WHO COME FLOCKING DOWN TO THE WARM WEATHER IN THE WINTER TIME.
SNOWBIRDS ARE THRILLED TO SEE A SIGHT LIKE THIS…A CUTE LITTLE BIRD LOOKING FOR FOOD IN THE LAST BUBBLES LEFT BEHIND BY A WAVE.
“YES I AM A LADY CARDINAL…THE MEN HAVE THAT BRILLIANT RED COLOR, BUT WE LADIES ARE ALL MUTED AND GENTLE BEAUTY.
I’M SURE THAT THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF TECHNICAL THINGS WRONG WITH THIS IMAGE, BUT I LIKE IT.
THIS IS A “JUNCO”…IT’S PART OF THE SPARROW FAMILY…NOT JACK SPARROW THE PIRATE…DOES THIS BIRD LOOK LIKE JOHNNY DEPP? NO….I’M TALKING ABOUT THE BIRD FAMILY.
