BIRD WEEKLY – PHOTO CHALLENGE – DUCKS AND GEESE

Lesser Scaup in Lake Eola, Downtown Orlando, FL January 20, 2018
This baby ( I think is a mottled duck) was injured at some point, but it looks like it is doing ok now. Still breaks my heart. I took this picture the same day as the Lesser Scaup in Lake Eola.

This is a response to a BIRD WEEKLY – PHOTO CHALLENGE – DUCKS AND GEESE

Enjoy my birds : )

Abracadabra your wish is going to come true!

I saw at the distance the a mist erupting the water, my heart was pounding as fast as the boat raft  we were on, that was speeding at full gear. I looked at my husband wondering if the captain was going to slow down. I kept looking at my surroundings and more mist in different locations blew out of the water. I counted like eight of them, and we were getting closer. Finally the captain slowed down and said while I was pointing out “humpback whales!” I took my face gear out, pull my camera, and start shooting pics. I stopped shooting for a minute and just looked. I was so happy, I wanted to do everything at the same time, take pictures, videos, and observe. I was looking for that perfect moment to shoot the fluke while the giant dive in. I tried before and I wasn’t successful, actually I was kind of frustrated to be honest. I had one more chance.

They were so close, I heard them breathing, I saw the mist of their breath going up to the sky.

Then, magic happened…

Shining Pelican

Can you hear the angels singing behind him? Mr. Pelican is shining with all splendor in his home town Ponce, Puerto Rico and I was there to capture its glorious moment.

Every moment is a great moment to shine!

Travel Partner

I am the kind of person that thinks that two is better than one. When you find that special person that you can partner with, to go shopping, to watch a movie, to talk, to live… to travel is like seen a complete picture. At least that is to me.

A partner could be a friend, a family member, or a pet. Maybe you could have different partners for different things. You might love to go walking at the park with your best friend because that way you exercises and talk at the same time, perfect package. That is your walking partner. But to travel you might want to be with the love of your life, to cherished those travel adventure together (like me :)). Or you like to travel with your sister because you understand each other or have the same interests. No matter who, the important is that you have somebody to enjoy life. We were design to be with others, we were design to partner with people, is the best way to live. 
I am glad I found my partner! He is the best and the good part of it is that I like to do pretty much everything with him, specially travel :D. 
 
Who is your travel partner?
 
Until then,
