Three Flying Ibises—in Focus!

March 8, 2018

I’m not a bird photographer. I don’t have the requisite long lens to do most birds justice. But I was excited to see these three ibises flying at the Robinson Preserve and thought I’d try following them with my too-short lens. Hah! They’re in focus! The bridge in the background is the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, which connects St. Pete (no one calls it St. Petersburg) to points south. It is a very long bridge—more than four miles end to end—giving travellers plenty of time to contemplate what would happen if another ship crashed into it.

Seagrape Surprise

Every year, I’m surprised by the beautiful emerging or senescing leaves of the seagrape. Like fall maple leaves up north, no two are ever alike. I’m never in Florida in late summer, when the trees bear edible fruit.
