Today, Hubs and I decided to go to Ft. DeSoto Park in Tierra Verde, Florida, near St. Petersburg. As the name implies- there is a real fort there on a really beautiful beach. Nana, Nature photographer, brought along her camera and had a good time- Hubs even indulged me as I lagged behind a bit- always trying to get a good picture!! (Crazy pictures). Sometimes he even pointed out "photo ops". We had fun. (Next weekend with the Grandboys and their parents!!!) I took a few pictures, then it started to rain and we decided to eat- I was a good Weight Watcher do- bee and brought some good stuff and I won't tell you what Hubs had at the snack bar- it wasn't pretty.
This one was Hubs' idea- he is a good sport!
I don't think it is aimed quite right!
These flowers were all over the place!
I didn't even notice the bee at first- lucky Nature shot for Nana!
How lucky was I to get 2, yes 2 different flowers with bees on them?? This is a close up of the above photo.
Note bird under bridge.
This is a storm coming in.
These are air hole thingys above the fort (I am sure they have a technical name).
The view from the Fort.
These air hole vent thingys fascinated me.
This water spigot cracked me up.
These were the ammo bunkers and I guess living quarters.
This is the "Data Booth"- I always thought the word Data was fairly modern, but I guess not!
These cranes were everywhere too.
We named him "Harry" after a crane that we used to have visit us when we lived on a little lake about 20 years ago.
The Sunshine Skyway doesn't look so scary from here.
Ok, these birds were really cool- scurrying around the beach collecting I don't want to know with their long beaks- BTW these were taken FROM THE CAR!! How awesome a nature photographer am I?
This was so far away- but I saw this flock of birds going by and I tried as hard as I could to get a good picture...
Then when I blew it up I realized they were pelicans- even awesomer!
I don't know what these were- I don't think I have ever seen them before!
All in a day's nature photographing!!
