Life has happened and time has passed without so much as a single photo blog post.
It was a clear beautiful day in Southwest Florida in February. I stood below the Osprey nest. The parents circled above me. They checked me and my suspicious looking camera. Babies in the nest called out. I felt a chill in the 80 degree temperature, one wrong move on my part and surly I would encounter the wrath of one of the parents.
On the 10th tee, I stood quietly waiting on a sunny warm February day. Golf carts whizzed by and I could hear the thwacking of golf balls. I paid little to no attention to the golfers as they came and went. I was completely focused on watching this heron stalking his prey. His hunting game was much more interesting to me. The intensity of the eyes, and there was a quivering in his throat as he made a guttural sound with each methodical and slow step towards the fish of his dreams.
I’m not sure that a summer vacation is attainable this year. I’m re-living my last vacation vicariously through my photos.
I stood on the golf course, camera in hand ready to snap a photo of an alligator that I was stalking. I heard woosh, woosh,woosh looked up and saw this Osprey circling above my head. Photo taken February 2012, Cape Coral, Florida.
