This week (Dec 9, 2014) the Red Knot was formally listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. These birds make migratory trips of nearly 20,000 miles annually. They are incredible voyagers. One even earning the nickname Moonbird because researchers calculated it's flown enough miles to make it to the moon and half way back.

Fishing under water can't be easy but this female Anhinga seems to have no problems with it. She did have a hard time transferring the fish to her mouth. ~ Hope everyone is having a great weekend :)

Photographing the beauty found in Southwest Florida has been a passion of mine for many years. Bird photography is my favorite but I don’t miss the chance to catch a sunrise, a flower or some of the wonderful animals and sea creatures found here. On my website megrousher.com you will find images from the beautiful wide open beaches to the solitude of the inland marshes and swamps. I hope you will find my images a perfect addition to your fine art collection.
