Default Fishing for his lunch

Went over to Sawgrass lake in St. Pete yesterday. Overcast rainy day but captured an interesting series.

Part I: On the hunt

Nice series...Sawgrass was my place for my daily walks, I only lived a few miles from there and went almost everyday...I miss it already! There is always an abundance of bird life there, even have seen hawks and an eagle and once an Owl....

Good place to explore...gators everywhere....

It is amazing how these birds feel with their feet then grab a shell and are able to open it....great capture!

Thanks for the comments Jim. Yes, had a nice walk there. almost got an eagle in flight while I was on the boardwalk, He came soaring overhead, but by the time I raised up my camera he had already disappeared over the treetops and he did not turn back my way. I had been to he Sunken gardens for a few flower shots and stopped by Sawgrass Lake after I left the Sunken gardens. It was one of those days that was sunny when I left the house that morning, but by the time I crossed the bay over to St. Pete the rain clouds were rolling in from the Gulf.

The 200mm helped a lot. You should come down to Florida and see how good we natives have it when it comes to bird shots!
