Some of those poses are really cute. It's nice seeing some photos of blue winged teals. I don't get to see them often. And the Manatee, I've never seen one in person before. They must have been fun to observe.

Helen: That Manatee shot wins by a nose. I loved the eagle, I want to get close enough to photograph one.

What a smorgasbord of birds!! It's always a thrill to see such a variety and to get their pictures. Great Post Helen!

Great shot of the manatee. Your photo of the python is causing quite a stir. We are scouting pond at end of boardwalk for it ...

Marsha said...

You have quite the variety here but I have warbler envy! The black & white especially they are so hard to capture with the camera. It must have been so fun to see these birds and all the natural beauty of FL.
