Florida Birds Guest Blog

Marlene sent me these Florida birds this morning 

“Seen while snow birding at the Savannas Campground in Ft. Pierce which is surrounded by marsh lands.  There are so many beautiful birds to observe from egrets to sand hill cranes but my favorite is the great blue heron.  It is the largest heron in North America. They were always alone standing near the marshes.”

Big Bell on a Flatbed Trailer 

My sister Mary caught this photo for me on the Pennsylvania Turnpike as we drove from NYC to Columbus.  

The guy was  driving so fast  we could not get any closer on the winding road through the Laurel Mountains. 

It’s not often you see a big bell on a flatbed trailer along the highway. 

See photo two below – the cropped version 

   
 Tuesday morning -Blogged from the phone in the Amtrak parking lot. Mary is catching a train to NYC after our lovely vacation. 


One Love Cafe – Gainesville Florida

Guest blog today from friend Kristin in Gainesville, Florida. 

Here’s her photo of One Love Cafewithin walking distance to their home. 

She saw the theme for the weekly challenge –One Love

Thanks for the photo today! Perfect for the challenge.

  


Camo Cactus

Guest blogger is friend Lisa who captured this shot when she took a walk.

Power in disguise. I should have included this image along with the real Saguaro yesterday so one could compare.

Believe me, when this “cactus” is all closed up and there is not a cherry picker parked alongside,  you’d drive right by a hundred times and not see the bolts or secret door!

Pick a Photo Pair

Guest blog by Shuey from Niceville, Florida. You may remember his popular guest post of the handsome Barred Owl.

I like both pairs of photographs. Majestic birds.  Thanks,  Shuey.

Snowy Egret or Blue Heron?  

   
 I wanted to share with all of you. 

Shuey wrote Saw the Snowy Egret standing tall out on the lake by our house as I drove home, so . . . grabbed my camera and went back. Still there.

While shooting the Great Egret, the Blue Heron splashed down right in front of me. Beautiful. Just had to share them with someone.

Best wishes for the new year,

Shuey

PS: Of each pair of photos, which do you like best. I would appreciate your opinion.
