I don't have to go to flicker to see which photos I like the best.
The Anhinga is beautiful as beautiful can be!

havalotta, that female anhinga was taken some years ago, probably with the fz-7!

Good idea, bridget!

Sage,
My only trip to Florida was to Disneyworld as a youth, so many of the bird species photos you are posting are new to me.

Thanks for giving me a "bird's eye" view of Florida.
Awesome photography skills too!!

Thanks, Booboo! WG should try for a meet-up down here for those who could make it. It's a goldmine of birds, plants and it's not buried under feet of snow!

Some shots of Brown Pelicans in Pine Island Sound off Bokeelia

I LOVE pelicans, Sage! They are so much fun to watch when they are fishing. I hope the young one was okay. Maybe he had gas!

We stopped in front of a very nice home on Pine Island to photograph this Wood stork on the roof. The home owner was out front so Roger asked him if they just had a baby...
