I saw this fly walking along a palm leaf and decided to try out some macro shots. I wasn’t happy with any of the more traditional photos I took but liked this one, taken from the underside of the leaf.

During a recent trip to the Florida Gulf Coast I was watching several Forster’s Terns as they hunted above the gulf. When they spotted a potential catch, they would hover for a second before diving, nearly straight down, into the water. I took lots of photos of them flying and hovering before I was able to capture this one just before it splashed into the water.
I saw this Brown Pelican standing on some rocks by the shore while I was visiting Bonita Springs, Florida. The pelican practically posed as I approached with my camera.
Brown Pelicans are a little funny looking but when I’m at the beach I love watching them soar along in the wind. They frequently glide along, just above the waves, in small groups and seem to have perfected the art of efficient flight.
