Taken during spring break down in florida. Thanks to Waddy (21.gif melonmusketeer) and Janine (21_F.gif ja-9) for showing us a marvelous time. What amazing people! What an amazing place!

If I lived there, my family would never, ever see me. I would spend my life with the birds and the gators, and probably disappear one day, only a shoe left, most likely eaten by a gator while trying to get an egret shot. But it would have been worth it!

Way too many outtakes to post. Here are a few:

But I put the rest in a Florida 2013 folder in my portfolio, if anyone is bored enough that they need something with which to occupy their time... :)

Thanks for all the incredible comments!!

this is so close to perfect, for some reason though the feet are throwing it off. Not enough definition perhaps?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What I like - EVERYTHING!!! Gorgeous bird, excellent in-flight shot, detail in the wings, white background

What I don't like - nothing, it's perfect and gets a 10
