This is the second image to a series of images featuring Yogi as Captain of the USS Corgi and the secret swamp journey…here’s the link to the first image in case you missed the boat up to this point.

Welcome Aboard!

Captain Yogi barking out orders to crew members as the USS Corgi departs the dock.

The dockmaster, a cormorant with attitude, watches the operation to ensure all regulations are followed by dock personnel. The dockmaster and Captain Yogi are true professionals and great friends.

A crew member points out to everyone that a nearby great blue heron just caught a fish and seems to be watching the operation as well.

An excited passenger points to the sky…a Roseate Spoonbill is flying overhead.

If you’ve been on board from the start, here’s the link to the third image:

I started out as an artist, became a pilot, and ended up where I am now: nature photographer and educator. Being a pilot allowed me to observe the Earth and humanity’s impact on it from 30,000 feet for many years. It allowed me to experience different cultures and to see the world through many lenses.

    lol….Thank you so much for the laugh. I read and I am still laughing. What an imagination you have. This is a wonderful capture by the way. I am still laughing. What a great thing to do is laugh. The best medicine. Thank you so much again.

  • you’re most welcome and that’s so kind of you to say and share…I try to make my wife and friends laugh all the time..medical studies indicate that laughter reduces the effects of stress, and, indeed, as you stated, the best medicine :-)
