Lazy summertime . . .

Southwest Florida is quite hot and humid this month.  The wildlife seems to seek out cool, hidden places during the day, much like us humans.  So, there aren't many photo ops.

The baby Osprey is not much of a baby any longer.  It spends more time away from the nest than on it these days.  It still comes back home and orders up room service, though!

When my son was on island last week, he took this video clip of the baby being fed by the adult.  It is quite a demanding eater!


Ibis in the backyard.  I love the blue eyes!

Why, yes, I am very pretty!  Thank you!

I love how a Pelican will sail right along just inches above the water.

Another beautiful day at the beach on Sanibel Island
