The pressure is on now – definitely would have been a good time for a 31 day month. To be honest, it is actually a bit difficult to type tonight. I am in a battle with a 270 foot long 18 inch deep ditch I originally trenched a couple of months ago to supply power to a new outbuilding. Since that original dig, I’ve had to hand dig across power and phones lines, re-dug the entire ditch by hand not once, not twice, but now three times due to rain and just spent all evening laying wire in conduit. At least half of it is done now – damn you rain gods!
For tonight I thought I would go with some more shots from my Ft Myers trip. Luckily these shots were already processed so the hard part is already done. Let’s start with a gorgeous Brown Pelican.
Pretty stoic bird all around. As with the previous Ft. Myers shots, these were taken at the secret lagoon behind the Holiday Inn. Wait.. I am not sure it is a Holiday Inn anymore. My brother Ron may know for sure – he was just down there to see my parents and had an opportunity to visit that birding hotspot again – I would have went with him, but that was the weekend of my Marathon (link here). These Pelican shots were taken on the backside of the lagoon on the ocean/gulf side – you have to cross a small inlet of water, but it is definitely worth it.
Hit the jump to see a few more birds from the trip.
