Pretty flowers on the trail to the beach.
A few of the usual birds on the beach.
I looked back as I was leaving the parking lot and saw the cardinal checking himself out on my side mirror.
A northern parula was the only bird in the woods in early April.
An osprey checking me out.
A pelican flying by and a common bird soaring over the beach in the summer, a frigatebird.
The storm clouds were moving in at Fort Desoto.
So many beautiful birds, Dina, especially the cardinal checking his makeup in your car mirror. And frigate birds — they’re so impressive, aren’t they? Wow. I don’t remember seeing any in Florida, but I can’t remember much of anything these days except seeing frigate birds in the Galapagos Islands many years ago. Thanks for sharing all this beauty with us.

Beautiful birds! I am especially fond of the cardinal preening in the mirror. Nice find!
