Whats on your mind little tern,
standing at water’s edge in the early morning light,
as you watch the gulf waters churn.
With waves pounding the shore,
luring you with its rhymed verse,
hunger and fading light brings signs of yore.
Back in October, 2014…
As I walked along the shore, hoping to watch the sunrise, I came upon this Sandwich Tern. He, just like me, was all alone on this particular morning and together we watched the day begin.

turning into the wind,
I took these photo on Bay Pier while visiting Fort De Soto County Park
Going back to the Fort to show you some White Ibis….
Until next time…..
I couldn’t hear their music,
The waves were signing just for them,
I could only watch in awe,
As they danced their dance,
In the early hours of morning’s glow.
Photo Challenge for April 18, 2015 called EarlyBird
This is my first time participating in a photo challenge.
I got up early to watch the sunrise while camping at Fort De Soto County Park, Florida. On this beautiful morning I watched the area come alive with life.
Walking along the beach, watching the birds, is such a delightful experience. Just like all animals, each bird has their own unique personality. It is fun to try and capture their personality with my camera.
The Snowy Egrets sure do know how to express their personalities. With their bright yellow feet, expressive eyes and showy plumage they are dressed for the stage and they never seem to let us down with their dramatic performances.
All you have to do, to enjoy the performance, is grab a front row seat!
Yellow-crowned Night Heron
We saw these Yellow-crowned Night Herons from the Fort De Soto campground.
