I chased Oscar around the entire morning before I managed to get this shot. I won’t mention the other hour of sprinting and dash…trying the get the turd out of his mouth. Everything is a game! Then it was a band-aid…I finally cornered him and my efforts earned me a nip…but look at that face!

I went down to the dock to take some shots of the turtles and out of the sky flies this egret and lands five feet from me (no doubt looking for a handout). I started taking pictures and he posed for five or ten minutes and then took off. Some days life is good!
I took Argentos photo as he was heading out to perform last weekend. He stands well over 15 hands and has enough weight to make ten quick pancakes!
Here’s another little guy from the Bird Rescue at Madeira Beach Fl. I’m pretty sure she/he was telling me that the tail feathers are kaput! Of course the other possibility is that he/she was politely telling me to kiss off!….:)
I shot these two lovely gents (or ladies) at the bird sanctuary on Madeira Beach Fl. My grandson was with me at the time and he was both mesmerized and terrified. Fortunately, for us, the buzzards just finished dining on a few discarded hamburgers & fries!
