Birds of a Feather

The Florida Brown Pelican has a wingspan of up to nine feet and weighs 30 pounds. The white pelican is even larger and the second biggest bird in North America after the California Condor. They are actually bigger than the Bald Eagle and much more plentiful. I love these birds because in flight they look a little like Pterodactyls as they glide through the air. This group near John’s Pass in Madeira Beach Florida almost seems like they are flying on a line.

Swamp Reflections

Lettuce Lake is a state park located in Tampa Florida. I like visiting there whenever I am in Tampa. It has a great series of boardwalks running through florida wetlands and a wildlife sanctuary. The reflections in the still dark waters can produce magnificent mirror images until disrupted by a bird, canoe or alligator.

Long Boarders

Every night the sunsets at the beach would bring something a little different. On windy nights the surfers were out and the whipping wind provided photographic challenges. But calm nights would bring out the long-boarders and gentle sea breezes made for a pleasant relaxing photographic experience on Sunset Beach.

The Funky Mailboxes of Sunset Beach–Part 2

Treasure Island and adjacent to St. Petersburg. Sunset beach is a little dead end barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico and primarily made up of houses and small condos. There is little traffic, only two restaurants and a magnificent beach and small boardwalk along Boca Ciega Bay. Although we did most of our walking on the beach, we also walked through the community and noticed that many people had really special mailboxes. Here are a few of the better ones.
