Sunset Blast-Off


Rich and I spent a happy couple of days at Fort De Soto over the Labor Day weekend. I know the shorebirds have been congregating there as they prepare for their fall migratory trip to South America. North Beach in the early mornings is a bird photographer’s paradise with hundreds of subjects in incredible light. I was really hoping to get some blast-off shots of the large flocks, but I found that the signage for the conservation area got in the way a little too much. But I did get this shot as the birds flew at sunset. More pictures coming soon as I go through all my images…
