Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    I was in southern Florida last week (Naples/Macro Island) and feel these pelicans represent Florida so well! Nice capture Auntie! xoxox

  • Debra, I can tell you are a photographer since you called Marco Island MACRO Island! LOL I know it’s a typo, but it was so appropriate! Hope you enjoyed your Florida trip. Still waiting here in north central Florida for things to warm up. Thanks so much for your kind words, my friend!
