Hubs picked today's blip. I was all set to blip this ONE, with his approval but then he saw this one and said - this isit. Who am I to argue with Hubs? Understand that he isn't a bird-guy, but he said that this photo fascinated him because it showed how truly prehistoric and unreal the wood storks look. I cropped this photo vertically to get rid of the extra space around the stork's head - I think this close crop allows the viewer to focus on the textures. And, I love wood storks.

We had a nice long chat with my parents this morning - always makes me feel good. And agreed that I am going to make a little trip out to Phoenix next month to spend a few days with them! (They've promised to try to find a roadrunner for me...)
Hubs and I went to a favorite spot (Conch Republic) for lunch on their deck today - seafood gumbo for him and Mahi-mahi (fish) tacos for me. Delicious and it was lovely to sit outside.
After we got back, I ran over to Lake Seminole to get a few shots while hubs worked on a little project in the townhouse.
Three more sleeps...
