My neighbor excitedly called me this afternoon to go outside (with dark glasses on) to view the 'rainbow' that surrounded the sun, so I excitedly did just that, with of course, my camera in hand. It was so unique and unusual, I felt privileged for the opportunity. The only disappointment was that I could not photograph it in its entirety as it was too large to fit inside the frame, so I only have partial frames.
We specifically went to Circle B Bar Reserve this morning around sunrise time (but was overcast and cool and we didn't see the sun pop through the clouds until we were preparing to leave at around 9:10 AM) to view the gathering of White Pelicans which others have seen recently.
While we didn't see them fishing as a group, there were oodles of Pelicans all over the lake. We spent nearly an hour observing them in 2 separation spots.
Enjoy the videos
Bob joked that we spent sooooooooo loooooooong observing the pelicans that moss started growing on my bike! :)
We saw 4 scampering raccoons on Alligator Alley but only got to quickly film these 2
I liked the water shimmering with the reflection of this tree

While working on my computer this evening in my lanai, in a nice 75F temp, with a beagle laying on my right and a yellow lab laying on my left, I lifted my head and gasped at the beauty right in front of me.
