Cutting Bait

The old  fisherman seems to be oblivious to the heron and pelican who are keeping him company but you can be assured they are watching his every move in hopes of scoring a treat of fresh fish.


Meanwhile just up the river these two are calmly floating on the water enjoying the beauty of the day.


In closing I will leave you with a picture of the peaceful swamp with the sun peeking through the trees.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit today.   I know there are so many excellent blogs out there with exceptional photography and you chose to be here and for that I am very grateful.

Hope to see you next week,



I’ll be joining these parties this week.

It’s Owl Good!

Halleluiah!!!  First time ever for me to spot an owl in the wild and he actually hung around long enough for me to take his picture.

A Peaceful Day on Fish River

How I love to take a boat ride on the river to see what all is going on.  There is always lots of action and I like to be right in the middle of it.   The cormorants, however, weren’t having any of it.


Two and a half turtles sunning on the remnants of a fallen tree didn’t even jump in the water when we passed by.


A pelican sat quietly on the river’s edge.  I didn’t realize I had captured him “dropping an anchor” until I uploaded the picture.


Another surprise was discovering the osprey in her nest once I got a close look at the picture.  The nest is huge and I could see it from afar but I couldn’t tell that it was occupied.

The peaceful day ended with a full moon rising beyond the branches of the cypress tree.

Thank you so much for visiting today.   I don’t get to spend as much time on the blog these days as I would like to.   You can find me more often on Facebook and I would love for you to drop by over there and say hello.
