During a recent visit to South Beach in Miami, I took this shot of a pelican out on its daily fishing jaunt. These birds look so graceful as they fly 8-10 inches above the water. What I find so amazing is the force they hit the water with during a fishing "dive bomber" attack, yet never seem to get hurt. I watched them do this dive from 30 feet up, into water that was only 8-10 inches deep. How they keep from breaking their necks is beyond me. Oh well, I'll just watch as they gracefully fly around.

Last week I saw an incredible sunrise in Newark. As I stopped to take the photo, I noticed quite a few passengers observing me, and then I saw the cameras come flying out of the bags/purses/luggage, etc. It was kind of funny because so many passengers were watching me for when and where to take the shot. Every time I took a shot, they did too, and when I put my camera down, they did too. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, do I look that much like a photographer????
