Sunday Stills – Droplets – 9.27.20

Brown Pelican taking off in the St. Johns River.

The feature image is a juvenile Brown Pelican learning to fish and practicing taking off & landing. Watching this bird was a lot of fun. The momentum got better with each time this bird took off & landed. In the beginning, this pelican was quite clumsy, but he always left a trail of droplets from the St. Johns River in his wake.

This post is in response to TERRI WEBSTER SCHRANDT Sunday Stills challenge. The theme this week is Water Droplets.

and for Cee’s Flower of the Day – keep scrolling!

Our front yard fountain that my hubby made from an old turkey roasting pan and pieces of slate & granite. I was able to capture a droplet from the flow of the water.

Two different hibiscus in our gardens a few years ago.

One lone droplet on this leaf at Lettuce Lake Park in Tampa, Florida.

I don’t the name of this plant, but it is purple and I love it!

The last 5 photos were taken today. It was still raining when I went out there to get some shots. How lucky am I that it rained today when we haven’t seen any precipitation in over a week? Woohoo!
