Islamorada Journal 2012...18 JAN

There are more than egrets and herons and osprey and pelicans and roseate spoonbills in the Keys.

This little woodpecker [see the tiny bit of red on the back of his head?] likes to knock his brains out each morning on the old, gnarly tree off the back deck.

Deb and I went shark fishing today.

The wind finally gave us a day off...as you can see it was like a mirror out there.

That made it easy to see the sharks in the shallows as their fins often stick up out of the water...or you can see the water being pushed aside as the sharks work their way through the skinny water.

We got shots at [casts to] several of them, but they weren't having any of our offerings.

Some of the sharks were quite large; for example, this one: both of those fins are his. These we labeled "ruh-roh"* sharks as we'd probably be better off not hooking up with them...sort of like a dog chasing an 18-wheeler. What do you do with it once you catch it?

*Important note: "ruh-roh" is from Astro, not from Scooby-Doo

Blog wouldn't be complete with out a couple of sunset photos...these from Tuesday.

A bird.

Don't know what kind, but he's a cute little rascal.

Second Tuesday sunset shot.
