Here’s a selection of images I took in January whilst in Florida. It was fantastic to escape the English winter for a few weeks 🙂
Photographing birds is not my strong point but I’m reasonably happy with these few.
This Great Egret took several minutes turning this fish around in its beak until it was at the right angle to be swallowed whole.
Tricoloured Heron and Great Blue Heron.
Great Blue Heron
Rush Hour. Late afternoon flight home.
“Never smile at a crocodile
No, you can’t get friendly with a crocodile
Don’t be taken in by his welcome grin
He’s imagining how well you’d fit within his skin……” Except this is an Alligator, but the evil grin reminded me of the song ! Needless to say I photographed it using a long lens!
In Florida a lot of trees are covered in Spanish Moss which drips down and is quite atmospheric.
In Sarasota there’s a 25 foot high statue that is modelled on a very famous photograph taken on VJ Day, 1945. It portrays a U.S. Navy sailor celebrating the day by impulsively kissing a dental nurse who was a total stranger. To give you some idea of the scale – I’m about as tall as the top of the back of her right shoe!
More statues in a Sarasota park.
Beach life. It’s not just in the UK that we have pesky gulls and stormy clouds.
Next post; U.S Road Trip…….
