Well it's been a quiet few day's here in Dunedin - Florida. We arrived and had a terrific rain storm, within minutes of the rain starting we were wading in water. Our first morning we went to the resturant attached to the hotel we are staying in (it's right on the waterfront), and hubby got very excited as he saw an Osprey diving for fish. So that afternoon armed with my little Nikon pocket camera we set off walking to see if we could spot the Osprey. We had not gone far from the hotel gateway when we surprised a Heron who was enjoying the afternoon sunshine
I did zoom in when I took this as the tree was very tall, but I am amazed at how good the photo has turned out. We walked about one and a half miles along the road to a park at the other end. As well as other species of Heron's and Egrets, we also saw Turkey Vulture's. We walked back the same route as we took, and the Osprey were still on their tree, keeping one eye on us as we walked by. We have since found out the they are very common along the west Florida coast line, also the Heron's, Vulture's and also Brown Pelicans (still trying to get a photo of that one).
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
