Terra Ceia Island, Florida, United States

Favorites of the week

It's been fun waking up early this week and look for photos. On a Sunday golf cart ride around Terra Ceia Island, my wife, Janet, and I came across a collection of egrets, herons and spoonbills feeding in the mangroves along Terra Ceia Road. A few mornings later over a span of several days, a cluster of cactus vines growing on Bayshore Drive began to bloom. It peaked one morning with at least a hundred flowers blooming like stars in the sky. I'm happy to live in such an amazing place and have the chance to photograph our beautiful island home.
