June Visitors



Some eleven to thirteen Wood Storks have taken up temporary residence at my neighbouring Glen Oaks Manor community, here in Sarasota, FL

I delight in these birds with their pink feet and long bills.  I've never before seen so many in one place.

I took my real camera with me this afternoon to try to get some better shots than with my smart 'phone.  My digital camera has a screen but no view finder, so taking photo's in bright sun is  difficult.   This is the best I could do.  (Noel Bailey, I need you!)
















Wood Storks look great in the air.   With a dog leash in one hand and a camera in the other I couldn't snap one in flight today .  

These are from the web.
