Poof and I were researching out closest Kites. It's either 10 hours to just north of Memphis or 12 hours down into Florida. I think I'll just enjoy yours and save
on gas ;)

One of my favorite images from this year's Florida trip.
I guess most of us have image Spoonies before, but this was the first time I ever
got to image one coming in head-on.

Interesting because we have tons of Canada geese and wood ducks here in my area. Getting shots of them is easy due to their numbers. I'm so envious of the various bird species you've posted. I sure agree with you...they are gorgeous in flight.

Often mistaken, but never in doubt.

That first one is a real cracker Martin, I heard one the other day but couldn't find it. First one I've even heard for a few years.

Thanks a lot MM, and good luck with those Gannets - they are now starting to re-populate the sea cliffs near me in large numbers :-)

Your hear that ? “In large numbers !” :lol:
Honestly, it’s like fish in a barrel. The first thing you will notice when you get out of the silver Vista Cruiser is the smell ! There are SO many birds there.
Yes, you will get close....with tons of flight shots because they are constantly flying in and out of the cliffs. You just have to be really careful with your footing. It’s a LONG drop to the sea below ! It wasn’t busy when I was there, but I saw some really questionable selfie-taking behaviour !
I asked one of the locals, “How many people have fallen to their death there ?” (There are no safety ropes or fences). He said none, but I think they probably just scrape the bodies under the rocks and let the birds and seals clean em up ? Bad for tourism and all ! They’re a really laid-back bunch out there !  :p
You guys are going to love it ! Sorry we will miss you by a couple weeks.
