Coastal Birding

I admit it. I have a lot to learn about photographing birds. Flighty little devils. But I gave it a couple of attempts while in Florida.

On the morning I watched the sunrise from the beach, I was entertained by pods of pelicans flying overhead, ready to begin their day. They would come in over the dunes and then glide low over the water, their wingtips almost touching.

Then on my way into the office, I pulled off the highway onto one of the access points along the Banana River. Fishermen were working on getting their day's catch. Another kind of fisherman, an osprey, was on the hunt for his breakfast.

Go Fish?

On the day I drove up to Kennedy Space Center, I passed a road that was marked as a birding trail. I'll put that on my list to do the next time I return.

I find birds Very difficult to photo. You did well, especially the osprey.

I think you did great! I can see so much detail on the osprey. Pelicans are really fun to watch aren't they?
