Florida left behind

Week three of my three month trip sees me leave Florida and arrive in Bozeman ready to start my photography tour.  Florida was a gentle introduction to travel, mainly hanging out with my nephews and being a supplementary soccer mom. I did a brief Everglades tour and a flying visit to Key West. The Everglades tour was interesting. The guide spent most of his time telling us how to hunt and shoot alligators!image image

Where my nephew plays football there is a nest of burrowing owls. If you get too close they hiss loudly before disappearing into their burrow.

A 24 hour trip to Key West with Richard, Maria and the boys was great fun but too short. We enjoyed the much married Hemmingway’s house, which has a replica cat house to accommodate the many descendants of his six-toed cat.

    Hi Paula, your unidentified Florida bird is a juvenile Boat-tailed Grackle.
