Gone to See Antarctica 2014/5 Day 6: Hurtigruten MS Fram visiting the Falkland Islands
The first place we stopped in the Falklands was Carcass Island. I was surprised to see palm trees this far south. It almost looks like the MS Fram was anchored off a Caribbean tropical island.

December Road Trip to Florida in 2011: Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge
I stopped for a couple of days in Merritt Island, and spent the time at the National Wildlife Refuge. A target rich environment. These are a few images from that day — Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, Wood Stork, Alligator, and Sunset. I especially liked the Great Blue Heron doing the “Chicken Dance”.
