Here we are in June and I have some follow up from last month.
Above you see a picture of one of the Chalks Airlines planes taking off in Biscayne Bay in Miami, Florida. I had an article here about Chalks Airlines last month and its somewhat colorful past. I hadn't seen a plane take off for several years, but shortly after I wrote that article, I heard the roar of an engine behind me as I sat at my computer, turned around to look out the window, and the above is what I saw. I grabbed my camera and took that image through the glass. The plane is taking off in Government Cut, the same part of Biscayne Bay where the cruise ships come and go. I just think it's neat.
Eurasian Collared Dove was taken on one of my many walks over to the post office. I'm sorry the image isn't better, but I was lucky to get this one before this pretty flew away. I thought the bird looked unusual and when I stopped to catch that image a lady who lives in Key West and I started chatting. She identified the bird for me and told me a little of the story of it being taken to the Bahamas, then the bird migrated over to Key West. If you click on the link, you'll get more information about it. I was surprised it is also found in the Arctic Circle in Norway.
So, that's my May, 2010 Follow Up. I hope you enjoyed these with me.
