Over the Rainbow...

On the day I photographed the "new" ship, I also took other pictures as I walked in some of the areas where I stopped. Wild flowers, fisherman, the beautiful stormy cumulus cloud formations and reflections on the lake at Leonabelle Birding Center. The lake was very clear near the observation tower where I could look down from the platform and see fish below the surface...clear as a bell. As I left, I noticed the wild poinsettias in "bloom" and the magnolia tree had the formation of the seed pods after blossoming. I was also hoping for some dolphin activity along the channel, but that was a 'nada'. And, as I thought, no special birds seen except for the usual ones that reside here year 'round, like the brown pelican in front of the ship's bow wake. But there were still beautiful spots to enjoy the morning including a very faint, barely seen full rainbow above the channel.... 








...and to continue showcasing my Trolls...

  1. Your sky shots are so stunning!!! What are the gorgeous pale pink flowers? And the strange looking spidery white ones? So much strange and unusual variety to see!

  2. Wonderful photos. The one of the fish just amazes me. It's like you are right down there underwater with it. I like the silhouette of the person fishing too.
    In my post today, yes, that is Lake Erie.

  11. Kind of liked that spidery looking plant also. That fisherman had several poles going. Things could get busy for him.
    I am always fascinated by really clear water and watching the fish go about their business.
