Second pic is this mornings post – original.

Ran across the second picture and it just didn’t work – so I tried a convert to black and white.

I truly enjoy pictures that show faces of birds. Just weird I guess. Perhaps I mentioned this – Biolab Dr is a road that goes through Canaveral National Seashore along the Indian River.
I also tried a full size picture. Please let me know if there are problems loading it. Thanks!
“Man’s heart away from nature becomes hard.” – Standing Bear
A little about Standing Bear. He was a Ponca Indian in Nebraska in the 1800’s. He was party to a landmark court case where it was judged that Indians were indeed people and US citizens and entitled to the same rights as others. Contrary to the governments argument that they were neither a person or a citizen. Unbelievable and incredibly sad.
I was creating a flower gallery and ran across some of these pics – not previously published. Probably a few more will trickle out in the next few days.

I really liked the colors on the tri color heron. As for the limpkin, he lives right at the first turn onto wetlands blvd. I have pics of him every month since February.
Couldn’t find this guy in my books. Hopefully the blooms will be open on my next trip.

The Indian Blanket flower at top is usually orange and red – my favorite flower – I was happy to find this variant.

I love these guys, they are fearless. I was walking along the berm and they shared it with me. Not showing any nervousness, just going about their business. Children stay with their parents for up to 10 months and couples stay together for several years. The Florida strain of Sand Hills are a threatened species – they have graduated from endangered.
Most people live and die with their music still unplayed. They never dare to try. ~Mary Kay Ash
The sun is very large in the morning. Sunday was the best – I was of course on the road – unable to get a shot.
