Can you imagine having a cottage on this silver sand that goes on for miles? Faces the gulf, on Boca Grande. Exposed to the west wind, but how lovely.
An osprey nest - the osprey family, two adults and a young, must be away fishing in the pond that is only 50 or so yards away.
This osprey has just finished lunch - a fish it caught a few minutes ago in the pond next to where this tree is located which is right next door to my friends winter home.
This white breasted silver-grey mocking bird regaled us every morning with every song in its repertoire, I heard some songs I had never heard before, this was obviously a well-traveled bird.
And finally a wealth of birds on the edge of the golf course at a feeder. Totally not supposed to be there - the feeder that is - but completely enjoyed by all that visited, including the watchers.
