For my birthday I wanted to get in the yak and head down to Keewaydin for some early morning photography and beach combing.
A view looking North from the isolated shores of Keewaydin. You can see the rocks from Gordon’s Pass in the distance.
A view looking south. That’s my kayak, and that’s the condos of Marco Island on the horizon.
There was a lot more glass on the beach than normal…
And a ton of giant Pen shells.
This lone Royal Tern had no problems with me and my telephoto lens.
As you can see, I was able to get a bit close to him/her?
A sailboat passes in the distance.
This Survey Marker is a bit buried.
A flock of Royal Terns landed on the beach near me.
They were not sure what to think.
But they didn’t mind posing for my camera as long as I didn’t get too close to them.
During my birding I was approached by an older couple asking for information on the large jellies that were washing up on shore. This is a photo of my educational lesson I gave them. You can see I flipped over the jelly for them and gave them some instructional diagrams, hah.
Royal Terns take flight!
Caught in the act!
That’s it for this trip, was a great way to spend a birthday morning. Thanks for looking!
