Manatees at Safety Harbor Fishing Pier.

The above pictures were taken a few weeks ago. It was cloudy and rainy when I left work so I decided to head to the grocery store instead of a park to take pictures. Since I had my camera in the car and the storms were moving away I decided to stop by the Safety Harbor fishing pier on the way. It was really windy and there wasn't a single person fishing, which means there were almost no birds there as well. There were a few stray laughing gulls. There was also lots of manatees. Because of the storms the water was not clear so I could only catch their noses coming up for air but it was fun to watch them for a few minutes before I headed off to the grocery store (a chore I hate).


  1. Wonderful snouts! I just love those manatee noses. I'll take hanging out with manatees over grocery shopping any day.

  2. Love the nose shots especially the 2nd one.

  3. I have a really cool video of manatees from our canal behind my house in Marco Island.It shows 4 manatees on 2 consecutive days.They are eating,breathing,passing gas.It also shows scarring from boats. I saw your photos from the manatee hospital in Lowry Park,very sad.Anyway my video is on Youtube(cribguy1 channel).
    Let me know what you think.Thanks and keep up the good work,I really enjoy your photos and stories.
