He really wasn’t saying anything, but he did stick around long enough for me to get a couple of decent shots of him as he did a bit of stretching. One of our winter resident Brown Pelicans perched on and old snag in the middle of Armand Bayou near Bay Area Park. The minute the alligators get a bit more active they’ll move to safer waters.
A little late in posting folks, but really hurting and trying to get a hold of a doctor but would be able to change an act of Congress before that happened.
This was was posing beautifully when a gust of wind blew up the chest feathers and looked like a flower, to me anyway.
Anyway the image prior to this folks I'm here to tell you that it is not mud, dirt, oil, soot or any other, the feather detail shows all the detail and none of the above, but your input runs the gambit and I thank you for everything and your thoughts.
thanks for stopping by, thank you for all your well wishes and kind words.
