Was walking by the water.  There were thousands of birds and so I wanted to send this snapshot back to Thailand.  Thai people are welcome in Florida!  Y'all get over here.

    I took a similar pic at Circle B last Sunday. Your camera takes much better photos than my cell phone. Glad to hear you got home for a while. Stay safe. Jim

    My mother in law lives in Sarasota. I have similiar pics to your previous posted but I've never seen anything like that. Do watch out for those gators while you're taking photos!

    The White Pelicans are over here in the Northeastern corner of Florida now. You should come here for some great shots also. They are very beautiful. I am always heading down the street from my art gallery to shoot photos of them in the Marina here in Fernandina Beach. The White Pelicans are not as friendly as the Browns so usually find them out in the river on one of the Shell Middens. Come see for yourself.

    Need to get signing Michael. :-) My copy is going to a Major who is Black Hawk pilot. Was in Iraq in 2005 during first elections. Just got back from 2nd deployment in Transition & Stabilization work.

    We appreciate you and your work. Where to next?

    Beautiful, Michael . . . as usual! Thanks to sending it to us as well as your friends in Thailand. Glad you're home for a little while. Rest up a little if you can.

    Only Browns so far here in Crystal River but I'm optimistic. I had forgotten how beautiful it was here in Florida.
