Never actually seen the sun fall behind the horizon at Flamingo. Thanks for taking on the spider webs and squishy mud to share those gorgeous photos:o))

Sure would like to know what spot you got those sunset pictures from and not just the feet in the mud ones. I have never been able to get any unless I was out on the bay in my kayak. Yours are beautiful. Hoping for the best for Linda's stepfather.

I love sunsets. Your picture from Flamingo is one of the best I have seen. We also love painted buntings. We saw about a dozen of them all in one place at Lajitas TX in May a few years ago, but had a very hard time photographing them. They did not sit still long enough to aim the camera. Looking forward to the reunion rally in May.

Sensational Photography. Very Nice daily log and well written. Loving these posts.


Wow, these are definitely some of your very best photos - you have captured some beauties here! That sunrise with the palm tree is beautiful, although it lacked the adventure of the sunset :-) Hope to hear soon that Adam is well.

No fair showing up at the rally with a tan while us northerners are pale-faces.

Gee you could have been gator bait stuck there in the muck. Anything for a great pic. Just think what a unique pic it would have been framed with great big teeth. The painted buntings really are beautiful.

Aren't there crocs in FL Bay? I don't know if the gators are in the Bay. Please inform! I was thinking of snakes when you said stuck in the muck. But GREAT photos!!

Amazing pictures. I must admit that I am crying on the inside while I look at them, as it is painful to be here in Ohio! Ha! I am loving your daily Flamingo updates! Beautiful.

Sherry, the first night's sunset was taken from between the mangroves on the Guy Bradley trail that runs from the camping area to the Visitors Center. I did a little wading.

The second night was taken from the point in the bayside walk-in camping area, and these were taken from that same point and from "inside" the mangroves just west of the point.

Of course, those vantage points only work for a short time of the year because the sun will continue to move north as the year goes on, and then it will be too far north to see it set.

Sue, yes there are crocodiles in Florida Bay, but they tend to have certain spots where they are known to hang out. Fortunately, the camping area isn't one of them. :)
