Pine Warbler at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary

Pine Warblers can be hard to spot as they like to stay high up in the trees.  This one was making its way through the lower branches when I saw it in Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary near Naples, Florida early this year.

Landing Pelican

I tracked this Brown Pelican in my camera as it came soaring in from the Gulf Of Mexico.  As luck would have it the pelican decided to land on the beach just in front of me.  There’s no substitute for being in the right place at the right time.

Hovering Forster’s Tern

Forster’s Terns soar above the water hunting for their prey.  When they see a potential target they hover briefly to take a closer look.  One they’ve decided to pursue their target they dive, nearly straight down, and splash into the water to make the catch.  This one was eyeing a possible meal above the Gulf Coast of Florida.
