Gone to See Florida 2013 Road Trip. Day 3: Foggy Morning in St. Petersburg.
When I woke up this morning and looked out from the balcony of my room at the Vinoy hotel it was foggy. I couldn’t even see the St. Petersburg Pier that I had been taking images for a time-lapsed video the previous night. I had hoped to go to Fort De Soto park for both sunrise and bird photography today — but it was way too foggy. Initially I could barely see the palm trees. At 11 AM, I still couldn’t see the Pier.
Gone to See Florida 2013 Road Trip. Day 2: St. Petersburg.
While visiting my parents in St. Petersburg, I found this Crab Spider on her web. I had never seen a crab spider during all the years that I lived in Florida. The first one I saw, eating a fly was at Selby Gardens a few years ago 26-December-2006. Now it seems that I see one every time I visit Florida.
