Just back from a holiday in Florida. Not a photographic trip, but as usual I took my 100-400 lens, my old camera body and was rarely without my pocket camera (which now has pocket dust inside the lens!).
As last year we went to Naples on the west coast; relaxed atmosphere, some good beaches and, for me both a fishing pier and a sprinkling of birds that can be snapped without having to disrupt the holiday.
but when it is the location is just great.
My first morning the dolphins were in (only one fish snatched this year), a shark cruised past and at one stage 3 ospreys were circling overhead. A snowy (little) egret has realised there can be easy pickings from the fishermen, and one day it looked as though an osprey was trying the same gig.
The more unusual sighting from the pier this year was of several magnificent frigate birds, one of which cruised close enough to enable some snaps.
