Back in the Sunshine Again!

Base Camp FL has started and I have to tell ya, it feels great to have the ooz of Tampa Bay between the toes and FL sun on the back. And with all of that, I’m back with friends.

Yeah, Laughing Gulls, they make me laugh!. It’s breeding season so they look great and act so goofy. The challenge, finding the right light for that black and white, find that light in enough quantity to freeze the silliness in the frame and not drive yourself mad in the meantime. The wind didn’t help today, going the wrong direction to get flight stuff.

Then there was this gift. Yeah, I’ve photographed the American Oystercatcher before here in FL, but it was always on the beach. This morning, had this individual on an actual bed of oysters! Now that’s cool. The time and tide were against us, but hope to find him there again this week. It was a great way to get back playing in the sun!
