Spent the morning today walking and wading the lagoon at Tigertail Beach.
Today, there were more photographers than birds.

I did manage to shoot the following:





My favorite of this morning:

...is what I am. I just discovered the fun of Florida bird photography while spending a few days on Sanibel, and it whetted my appetite. Thank you for posting these, and for taking the time to talk about lenses and learning about bird habits to create the best shots. These lift my heart. Amazing.

Hi and thank you for the high praise ......it is much appreciated.

Sanibel is a beautiful island and one that I tried getting to this March. But, you can't be everywhere. So, I concentrated on the Everglades, Corkscrew Audobon Sanctuary and Tigertail.

Hope you have a lot more opportunities to explore this wonderful state of Florida.
