FEATURED in AMAZING Wildlife, Dec. 5, 2012

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.

    lol I love this capture Dot – It looks great in bw and I love the way he’s looking right at you. You know, I hope it turns out to be a good day for a SALE or two, too. :) Faved.
    Love Colleen2012

  • LOL I hadn’t thought of that play on words…very good! I was sort of stuck with the sailboat in the background, so I used it in the title to make the bird say something. I think I’m going a little crazy with all the pelican shots I’ve taken lately…got more yesterday in Cedar Key! Thanks for your comment, Colleen!

  • Thanks, Lynn. I’ve had a lot of pelicans looking at me lately…more yesterday in Cedar Key. I hope I don’t bore everyone with them.
