Not too long ago I wondered why I wasn’t seeing pelicans when I was out for sunset photos. I had enjoyed seeing them on my first visit to this area when my son got married here, a very long time ago. Then I noticed one here and there, but last night they were everywhere. It seemed like every sign had a pelican or two perched on it. And to see them flying low to the water and dipping their bill was fun, but it all happened too fast to try to capture in a photo
. Maybe I need a better camera, or a better photographer. Still, it was a nice Pine Island evening. With an extra photo of the sunset from the night before thrown in. Is that cheating? Maybe…This is from the night before. I thought I must have adjusted it out of all reality, and then I saw a photo by my friend Rosie, taken the same night from the neighboring beach, and this really is what we saw.
