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!

Bird Fun, Fun Bird, Fun Shots

Ahhh the sun, the beach, the wildlife and my camera! A fun beach day won’t be complete without my camera. Diligently I am always in the look out for spontaneous and common moments that bring joy to my relax day. Some snowy egrets were close by me, and I could help my self, and I got my camera out.

Let me share one of my “fun moment” at the beach taking pictures of these cuties. I found them funny with their yellow feet and their rock and roll “hair” look.
Here you can see they are like soldiers waiting for a command, but in reality they are waiting for some fish that a boy is getting for them from his fishing net.
I love this picture, it’s so funny to my how he is so concentrated waiting for a fish. And what about his hair! It looks like he iron it.
Check out the close up. It’s so lean and narrow. Yellow eyes and long hair with a long black beak, what a guy!
More cool shots of my model of the day.
And it left. But I took a curious video of one of them trying to catch some food and it looks like it was dancing with the waves.

Do you have a Spare Plan When You Travel?


 In life we should have spare for basically everything. That is just my opinion. When I plan my travels I always have a spare plan (plan B) just in case I need it.
Things not always run as smoothly as we want or planed, and a spare plan once in a while is need it. In a moment of need, if you already have that spare plan handy, it will
make your travel experience more enjoyable instead of stressful or frustrating.

Nature seems to do the same thing. I found this nest in my Trinitaria bush (Bougainvillea) in front of my house. I was trimming the bush when I found it, there was one egg.
The next day I went to check the nest and there were two eggs, but I didn't took a pic. The next day I went to check the nest again and for my surprise there were 
three eggs. Guess what? I checked again the following day, and there it was another egg for a count of four. 

To give you an update of the eggs status... Even that mama mockingbird laid 4 eggs, no even one survived some kind of predator. Few days later the nest was empty and we 
found a broken egg on the floor. :(  
Until then,
