DingDarling NWR

We had a wonderful family trip to Sanibel Island
with my daughter and 3 of her daughters. It subbed for an aborted trip to Key Largo. From our perspective we could not have lost too much. I would have liked to ensconce myself in Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge more but family was fun too and I got to show them some of the birds that fascinate me. That includes this Ibis overhead. I have nice images of many of the endemic large waders but I am always looking for a new perspective. The translucent feathers in the backlit wings are quite impressive. See some other photos from that trip in Whats New.
