Not a flamingo

Shore birds are fun to watch.  This Willet was wading through the shallows and seemed to get seaweed stuck on its foot.  The “flamingo pose” was struck every couple of steps as he tried to shake off the extra baggage.

Sanibel is such a beautiful place and we enjoy being here each time we visit.  The sun and sand are wonderful but I really love watching the animals.  It is really amazing how often we walk by these natural wonders and don’t even notice them.  The more time you spend looking at them, the more interesting they become.  I hope my photos encourage others to take the time to enjoy the wonders of nature.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
