Islamorada Journal 2012...09 JAN


Showing photos of birds today...some rather mundane, such as this mourning dove which I photographed on the deck of the house...and some a bit more exotic.

All the rest of these photos, but one, are Deb's.


This is just a plain old garden variety brown pelican.

Click on the photo to enlarge it and you can see the detail in the feathers.


This is a turkey vulture which can probably be seen in most states of the U.S. circling over the highways looking for roadkill.

But, it's not that often that one bumps into a roseate spoonbill...we saw at least ten of them today.

This shot of a great blue heron [oops, we mean] reddish egret shows the feather detail nicely.

This was the only spoonbill photo I got that was any good.

I think this photo of white pelicans that Deb took is really lovely...nice composition. Worthy of being used on note cards.

In case you're wondering, the fishing wasn't too hot today.
