    All beautiful, as always! I think my favourites are the 1st and the 3rd (great capture)... The detail in the spoonbills feathers is amazing.

    thank you for always posting your bird photos... what a wonderful inspiration!

    Hello Dan, more variety than just these few images show. The wildlife drive is seven miles long through marsh and wetlands and then the beach and shore is another habitat. A wonderful place the government set aside when it built Kennedy Space Center.

    Like the RWBB, one of my favorite birds lately. The spoonbill shot is stunning!
