Birds Of A Feather

Sunrise over Ramrod Key and for a change Cheyenne and I were not alone on our first walk of the day.

With heavy rain and a high tide flooding happens.

And flooding brings breakfast.

To those who wait patiently.

When you are a wader you are required to spend a great deal of time stepping carefully through your food.

And keeping an eye on strangers who might be poaching your food.

But in the end the business in hand is hunting to which activity the predators must return.

Though, like me, this guy did not much like being watched while he ate.

Some hunters travel together.

And make pretty pictures as they stand amidst their bounty.

Back to back, keeping watch.

Sunrise kept on coming.

Time for us to go home and hunt our own breakfast.

Lovely pictures- all of them but the reflection of the bird in the pool is by far the nicest.

I am glad you liked them. I generally feel awkward taking pretty pictures.
