Range Tracking

15-Minute Beach Photo Op

A brief late afternoon visit to the beach at Bob Bruce and Janice Broda’s house allowed for some quick captures of some passing birds. Naturally, the Pelicans flew by as I was putting the camera away so I missed them. And did I mention that these photos were taken in the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge, next door to Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge, on the 111th Anniversary of the National Wildlife Refuge System!

Moments before this Cormorant had been swimming underwater in the Atlantic Ocean. Now it was flying by me heading toward the Indian River Lagoon.

Here is what the scenery looked like that I had to contend with.
