If you follow me on FB or my South Florida photo collection on G+, you’ve seen a couple of these already, but I’m posting them here because many of you only see my work on the blog. Besides, you wouldn’t mind seeing them again, right? 😉
Let’s start with the common moorhen, a bird I don’t think is common at all. They’re striking, in fact, with that red face shield and yellow on the beak. The bird looks particularly happy in this shot.
Boat-trailed grackles are common where I live. I was zipping down a residential street on the moped when I spotted this fellow in a palm tree. I love the way he’s draped with green, and the fruit in his mouth adds just the right touch.
Have a great week! Friday, I’ll be posting a short story.
