Lunchtime break....

Took a little break at lunchtime yesterday. The weather was beautiful and I needed some time to relax and recharge before the afternoon...so I drove along one of the local lakes. Stopped at the one little pull off area that is not posted Private and caught a couple shots.

...a little cypress tree...trying to be a bonsai



Three ibis' in a row. I would have loved to have gotten a better shot but they were on private property, so I had to shoot from the right of way...



This lovely little flower was one of many in the wet sands along the water's edge. I saw it had a little visitor...

Day out with the girls...

It was a beautiful day here in Florda. My son was camping with the Boy Scouts...so the girls and I headed off to the local zoo.

This little cowbird met us as we arrived...

Tori had to pose with her "monkee brothers" as she likes to say.

These flowers were in the butterfly garden. The blue ones looked painted in air.

Yellow and Orange

The puma was enjoying the shade. I wish I could have made the cage disappear better but because of fences couldn't get in the right position.

Came home and headed to one of the local parks along a lake. This Great Blue Heron was just hanging around so he could pose for me.

Five in a row...

Egret in the evening....

Stopped at a little dock on the way home and captured this shot. I liked how he was standing so serenely there on just one leg.

Osprey and Sunset...

I snuck out for a bit this evening at it was getting dark. This pretty osprey was nice enough to pose for me before it got too dark. Then I went on down the road to another pier and got a shot of the sunset.

...just Florida sites and wildlife

The near full moon was looked so neat in the evening sky a couple of days ago. I snagged this one about 5pm as I walked out to my car after work. I just liked the way it looked between the tall palms.



Drove by one of my favorite bird hangouts on my way back from lunch today. These cormorants were just hanging out. There were 4 in a row when I drove up ...but of COURSE one had to hop down into the water before I could fire off a shot. The others hung around long enough for me to grab a couple shots and then they all starting hopping down into the water until they left one lone fella on the dock.
