This gathering of pelicans and cormorants on the pier behind the Seabreeze Restaurant in Cedar Key, Florida, USA, reminded me of a party!

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.

    Why was I not invited? lol… lovely work Dot.

  • With all your little birds surrounding you, every day must be a party! LOL I don’t know if I’d want to walk out on that pier…I’m sure it’s pretty “white washed” with all those birds on it all the time. Thanks for your comment, Andrea.
