On a hike, we came upon a flock of Warblers. They were frantically searching the Oak Trees for food. I was trying very hard to capture a fews photos and had just about given up.

This sweet little Pine Warbler flew into a tree in front of me, sat there for awhile, seemingly resting, then flew off. I was able to take a few shots as it sat there. The light was pretty good and I was pleased with the photos. There were also some Palm Warblers flying around.

I did have a few worms fall on me while walking under these moss-covered, Oak trees, which wasn’t fun at all.

~Lord of the Vultures~

Does he have a gleem in his eye?

Howard and I came upon this scene while on a hike in Myakka River State Park. We thought it was pretty funny. This Wood Stork was standing in the middle of these Black Vultures. We just wondered what the Wood Stork was doing.

We nicknamed him – “Lord of the Vulures”. Notice some of the Vultures speaking their mind or maybe they were chanting. Maybe Wood Stork is having an identity crisis.

"Should we try for one?"

“Should we try for one?”

These two hawks, sitting in a tree above the shoreline near the group below, were waiting for a chance to catch breakfast. It was tough getting a clear shot of them, because they were hiding behind tree branches and leaves.

Wondering what to do about those two hawks.

“What should we do about those two hawks?”

"Do you know these people?"

“Do you know these people?” (We took a bike ride from the campground to North Beach one day.)

 

"Okay, you may go home now."

“Okay, you may go back to your RV now.”
