This was way to easy.  A permanently injured eagle at Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park. Whoever added the flag on the back fence was a genius.

I found this flag hanging on a wall in a tourist shop in Tarpon Springs. It’s made of shells and starfish.

I was looking through some older folders of a flag picture to post for today and came across all of the above. I couldn’t decide which one to post so I added all of them. All reminders of the summer season. From Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day.

  1. Fantastic photos, Dina, you are an excellent photog. The young bald eagle, WOW. It’s very cool that you got the ground pre-fireworks fountain, it has a real hometown, neighborhood feeling. I about over hearing them for the fifth day in a row, tho, haha.

  2. Lovely collection of patriotic photos! Eagles always give me goosebumps when I see them. Such majestic creatures. The one with the flag backdrop is awesome.

  3. this is such a beautiful post. that top shot is wowza. and hey, your sister lives on the other side of the state from me. that is a fun bit of news. 😀
