Hi !!

I’ve been gone for a while, and I wanted to pop in and say “Hi!”  Central Florida has seen most of summer, and as the days are getting shorter, we face Daylight Savings time. For the record, if i was in charge of “stuff” for a day, DST would be one thing I would do away with. Anyways….

I saw a few migratory birds this week, and am starting to get excited about the winter flocks arriving to spend their winter with us. I can’t wait for them to show up in force.

Look how the baby Spoonbill is nestled against the Big Pelican

As you know, my Tampa Bay Rays did not make it to the games-afters. Maybe next year. GO RAYS!!

I had the good luck to see a beautiful moment when a fledgling tried to convinve Mama that she should still indulge the whims of the baby.

I had some fun with brushes and fractals

Math can be so pretty

I will only show one more image, the most recent. While the Mullet run is almost over, I did happen to find a few stragglers this weekend.

That’s all for now. Thanks for taking the time to look, and I hope I can find the time to come back a bit more often.

Let’s look at a ‘Gator and A couple Great White Heron’s causin a ruckus.

Soooooooooooo. I get to share a couple of posts I did this week. Kinda chilly tonight, and after Johnny made a tremendous beef stew for dinner (that pressure cooker is handy!), we are fat and lazy. While the dishes soak, and Van Helsing (Dracula) is on t.v., I have been looking thru some images.

We are a winter destination for a lot of the migratory birds, and they are beginning to arrive, while the residents are getting ready for the cooler weather that lies ahead.

I try to walk during lunch, and Wednesday, this little guy was in his normal spot, enjoying the sun. I’ve watched him grow, and he has had a good year, I wish he wasn’t so thin, but he will bulk up. 🙂

Little Alligator

While I was watching him watching me, these two showed up out of nowhere, and started up.

I thought it was cool, and I wanted to share it with you. I shot some Spoonbill’s I’ll share with you the next post. But right now,I gotta go get started on the dishes.  Have a good weekend.
