My New (Non-Photogenic) Friend

FINALLY, I am going to start posting some of my photos from Estero Bay.  Not that anyone has been waiting with baited breath to see these pictures or anything, but the past few weeks with Tim leaving and then being deployed has left me extremely busy.  However, with the puggles sleeping at my side and getting comfy on the new couch (with recliners) I am getting busy with my photos.  Over the next few weeks I will post random pictures from the weekend, which I must say, we had a great time.  Hope you enjoy!!

The first post is going to be about my new friend.  When I saw this bird start to fly our way, I had no idea what it was.  We both thought at first in was a flamingo but after further search we found that it was a Roseate Spoonbill.  Yea, that is what we thought!!  What the....!!!  It's long, broad bill, bright pink wings and orange tail made it hard to miss for sure.  The only problem was it never came close to us.  We got one shot at it as it flew by us, at about 200 yards.  It made me a little sad because I can only imagine the beautiful pictures I would have gotten had he decided to come and say hi.  Oh well.  The following pictures are not great, I understand, but I did want to share my new friend with you.  Enjoy and stay tuned for some really awesome pictures!!!

Thanks for following!!!
