Gull doing the hokey pokey


The bird is the word


Killdeer at the salvage yard

See the three eggs? One from 2010, I put this on flickr years ago and thought of it on Wednesday when I went to see Joel Sartore speak in Tampa. He had a photo of a Tern which also nests on the ground and lays eggs that blend in with the ground. This killdeer was at the Starkey Road Auto Parts. I saw the adult and it was faking an injury to lure me from the nest. Sticking one wing out and acting like it could not fly. The guys that worked there had marked the nest with a propane tank and some scrap so they wouldn’t run it over while they were moving stuff around with a forklift.

Hawk flight

There’s a few hawks living in the trees around my office in Oldsmar. Pretty cool seeing them every day. Shot this one taking off.

Egret Dance

Reddish Egrets don’t just stand there waiting for the food to come to them. They’re fun to watch like this guy yesterday morning in Tampa Bay by North Shore Park in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Baby bird

Fledgling in a parking lot at work a few weeks ago. It might be a warbler. There were a couple fo other ones nearby and the adults too.

Owl in nest

Might have been borrowing the hole from a woodpecker. The next day there was a woodpecker in this hole and I haven’t seen the owl since.

Injured hawk someone had rescued from the middle of the road downtown. They had him wrapped in a jacket and were waiting for a guy from the seabird sanctuary to come get him.

Emo horse

I think this horse has feelings… or maybe it’s just the hair.

Gull coming in for a landing.

Lizard in the spotlight (85/365)

He found a nice warm spot…. or maybe I light him up with a hand mirror. 🙂

Frog (70/365)

Spotted him hanging out in the yard so I grabbed my macro lens for a close-up.


Thought it would be cool to blow it out.


In Cedar Key at the big pier. He was watching the people fishing so I was able to get real close.
