Because my blog buddy We are: Clamco was kind enough yesterday to mention she misses my bird photos, I couldn't help but scare one up. (This photographer/blogger responds well to positive reinforcement.) This beautiful feathered creature is a snowy egret. He was perched in a tree overlooking the fishing pier on Sanibel on a beautiful morning after several days of rain. Speaking of storms, hopefully, TS Isaac will spare Sanibel and everywhere else and just fizzle in the Gulf of Mexico. Then, the Republican National Convention and all the accompanying business revenue and protests can carry on up the road in Tampa. Happy Friday everyone!
