Florida skies

Linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences  

For this week's Good Fence and Skywatch Friday memes I am sharing more birds, skies and fences from Florida's east coast..Most of the photos were taken at the Cape Canaveral Seashore..



The Moon on the morning of March 17th during our Florida trip.


A pelican sky on Florida east coast..


Fences at the beach, a beautiful day on Florida's east coast..


A Red Shouldered Hawk and a Cormorant with another pretty Florida sky.


A Florida sky with any angry Bald Eagle and mate..


A Florida Osprey sky...


A Florida sky with some airplanes..


Don't you just love the pretty blues? The water and sky just a lovely sight..I wish I could enjoy this sight everyday.... I hope you enjoyed this series of skies, fences and birds...I just can not do a post without my birds, lol!

Thanks for stopping by and for the nice comments..

That's a tremendous moon shot Eileen. Like it has been carved out of the dark sky. Love the Osprey picture too - poised for action, just like us birders. Have a great weekend!

Sue said...

Hi Eileen
You got a GREAT shot of that osprey. We have a nesting set about 30 miles from us in the middle of a wetlands. My camera cannot get in close enough. You really captured nice details....it was interesting for me to see it "up close"
Have a wonderful day

Mary Hone said...

I love all of those!

Karen S. said...

You have blessed us with such lovely views! That moon is absolutely something to howl at too!

Sandra said...

you have it all today, water, sky, birds, fence.. so beautiful..

Andrea Priebe said...

I do enjoy the beautiful blue skys and water ... and I understand the attraction to the birds. Great selection of them, I must say. Your moon shot is spectacular. May I ask what camera and lens you used for it. I am having serious trouble with my zoom lens and am starting to think about replacement. Great pictures, Eileen and I am curious if you know what the eagle is so angry about :)

Sandi said...

So beautiful!

I saw the NASA picture of you with a ...soace capsule? Are you an astronaut?

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

C'mon down Eileen! I'm sure the STate of Florida would love to have you year round. And right now, the traffic has died down, all the pesky snowbirds have gone back up north (except us, we stay longer and pretend we're locals!)

You captured our beautiful skies perfectly!!

Gail said...

How beautiful! A little slice of heaven in these photos.

Thanks for visiting.

Kathy said...

Loved the variety of bird photos.

Beautiful images, the birds are out of the world, and so is your sliver of lemon, love it.

Very fine evening Eileen :-)

I love it when people get creative and combine lots of different memes. Someone once did a blog post combining about 6 different memes.... ha

Great FLORIDA pictures. One cannot go wrong taking pictures of any kind in Florida.... Love your birdie photos..

A strong wooden fence makes a good fence. Like all your pictures, very pretty.

Lois said...

One of the things I enjoy most about your posts are your birds! I have a pair of red shouldered hawks nesting in a tree in the woods behind my back yard right now. Fun to watch, but they are chasing all my other birds away!

Gayle said...

Somehow missed the moon shot this a.m. Caught it at Skywatch.
Outstanding contrast.

The Yum List said...

What peaceful, beautiful photos today.

J said...

Your moon shot just blows me away! I am having a "Grandma Camp" this summer and was hoping to study the moon with the kids when we go for a night hike. We'd be in heaven if we saw something this spectacular!
And the bald eagle pair - wow! What a lovely shot - it's as if it were posed!

Photo Cache said...

Those look like big league birds. What a lovely spot for birding.

Worth a Thousand Words

Yes, yes....I do love all the blues!!! And such gorgeous views you've shared. Of course, my favorite is the osprey. They're so pretty.

Kayni D said...

I really love that moon shot. Amazing capture.

John's Island said...

Hi Eileen, Some great pictures here! Nice work! On the eagle pics ... wow, they look serious don't they? Sometimes I see eagles flying around here and there will be smaller birds circling around them but they seem to be smart enough not to get too close to the eagles. Your photos speak of the power of those birds. Have a great weekend!

Marie C said...

Love, Love, Love the variety of awesome birds perched on those high branches! Awesome! Loved all the shots!

Susan said...

Such gorgeous sights Eileen. No way could you leave out your birds... you have magnificent images. Love all those clear blue skies and sea as well. Great fences too :D) Cheers and good wishes!!

NatureFootstep said...

yea, we love those skies, but we had rain today, much needed, so today grey was good :)

Happyone said...

Oh yes, the blues are just gorgeous.
I love the crescent moon.
All your photos are stunning.

Max-e said...

Nice collection Eileen. Been enjoying your bird pics too. I really need to blog more of my own. Have great weekend.

schmidleysscribblins.com said...

You got some fabulous shots of the Florida sky. Moon shot is grand. Why does the moon look so close in Florida? I've never found the answer.

fredamans said...

I LOVE the sliver of a moon, and the first boardwalk shot!

Linda said...

I'm impressed that you shot two birds in one tree... Twice.

Irene said...

Fabulous captures ... diffucult to pick a favorite :)

Wish you a great weeend!

Irene

Beth @ PlantPostings said...

Fabulous captures, Eileen! I would say I miss Florida, but I'm glad to be back home, too. It was great to be there for a month this winter, though. I agree: The skies, water, and beaches are unequaled. Glad you had a great visit, too!

lina@women perspective said...

Wonderful varieties, Eileen.
I love the blue sky!
Thanks for dropping by, happy weekend.

Lynne said...

You have the best moon shots ever, all kinds.
Loved this banana like moon . . . so cool!

Black Jack's Carol said...

Love your skies creating beautiful backgrounds for all of the wonderful birds. How wonderful that you made it to Florida. It would have been quite a drive (maybe two days). Or perhaps you flew. I've missed so much :( but am glad to be catching up now.

edenhills said...

These are all wonderful captures! Love the eagles and moon.

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

You caught lots of things/creatures flying!!
