Into the Mist

SDP 3-17-16Sea fog rolling across Sarasota Bay last night and blanketing the Ringling Bridge.  Although it was spritzing a bit and the temperature was dropping, this pelican seemed to be patiently waiting out Mother Nature to resume flights.  Happy St. Patrick's Day!

What a magnificent fellow, but where was his " Wearin'0'the green?" Superb photo of the bridge with mist for a background.

Very nice! We've had a lot of fog the past few days, too, but there are no chances for such a great photo here!

The mist adds a bit of mystery to the scene.

Ideal to photograph in the fog when you get a chance. It's so rare here. The pelican's very kind to pose for you!

You've been capturing some wonderful birdlife. You've even gotten that touch of yellow-orange on its cheek. Very nice! And I do like the fog.
