Birds in Fort Desoto Park, Pinellas County Florida.
It is always fun going to Fort Desoto Park on the southern end of Pinellas county separating Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico to take bird images. The three images for this day include a Great Blue Heron, a White Egret having a cricket for breakfast, and an Osprey building a nest under a nearly full moon.
