Fly Silhouette On Palm Leaf

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.

Anhinga In Mangrove Tree

This Anhinga was beautifully perched in a sunny patch of a mangrove tree when I encountered it.  The Anhinga was picking leaves out of the tree and seemed to be playing with this one before it dropped it.

Diving Forster’s Tern

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.

Brown Pelican On Rocks

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.
