On this day, Black Skimmers were going up and down the shoreline scooping up any small fish within their grasp.
Birds of Prey or raptors include species of birds that primarily hunt and feed on vertebrates that are large relative to the hunter. They have a keen eyesight to find and capture their food, often while flying high in the sky. They have strong talons for grasping and killing their prey and also have strong curved beaks to tear their food apart.
Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge
This was another moment I got down on my knees in the sand to capture a bird at eye level.

Storm moving in and the Gulf of Mexico is beginning to get churned up. Some of these older docks don’t always withstand hurricanes, but they often get rebuilt until the next time. It is really nice to be standing out there feeling the breeze… Continue Reading “SQUARES – Perspective – Boat Docks”
Sun is beginning to set stationed just behind the left palm tree over an inlet of the Gulf of Mexico near Fort Myers, Florida a few years ago. This is paradise! Until a hurricane comes around. Enjoy it while you can because it will look totally different during a tropical storm or hurricane. Take the good with the bad!
