|Run On Water|
There he was standing at the water's edge all proud, while air drying his massive wings in the warmth of the setting sun. Let's just say that birds make a statement here in Florida, their size alone captivating. Their playful antics, sometimes outrageous, sometimes amusing and most of the time just pure entertainment.
The golf cart expedition, with hubby as chauffeur began around seven PM, after dinner at the Pub. We met a couple who told us that there were sand hill cranes over on the second hole. These beautiful birds have eluded us for three days now. Once again they remained elusive. We did however, manage to capture this skittish anninga bird. I approached him cautiously with camera to eye, sure of my footing as a large expanse of grass lay before me. The click of the shutter spooked him into a great escape and he literally ran a top of the water. I think I captured his unanticipated exit well. He dove down deep, with only his head visible above water, after a few seconds. Looks like more drying time may have been in order.
I think that we shall never tire of the awesome show that Mother Nature, provides us well, on a daily basis. It is all there for the viewing. In search of the elusive cranes today. Hope to bring you those photos tomorrow!!! Have a wonderful day!
