Birds and dolphins at the Fort Desoto fishing pier.

Snowy egrets on one of the roofs of the fishing pier. It was a windy day.

Nice pose.

White ibis flying by.

More dolphins.

Neat looking ship passing by the fishing pier.

Another sunny Sunday afternoon spent at Fort Desoto. It was very windy and cool. There won't be many days like this left before it gets miserable hot. I saw a lot of dolphins but weirdly they were all swimming far away from the pier. Usually they swim around and underneath the pier. I guess it's better that way. Sometimes the dolphins go after the fish caught on the fishing poles. The dolphin tries to swim away with the fish and ends up with a hook in his mouth or stomach. The fishermen are always mad because they've lost a hook. I always want to say "How would like to spend your short life with fishing hooks in YOUR stomach?" but I don't. I just walk away and shake my head.

  14. Ive become anti fishing due to the horrible effect it has on all wildlife who come in contact with the gear!!
    WOW eye popping shots against that blue sky...If you tried to line those Ibis up with a ruler you couldnt have done a better job!!

  15. Great shots Dina. What a natural wonderland you live in. Your White ibis catch is reminds me so much of a formation of Canadian geese and is quite spectacular. Your egrets are sure in fine feathery form. You know, I still can't get over your Great egret nursery pictures from a few weeks ago. They are locked in my memory forever. Thank you for sharing!!!

  17. I love scrolling up and down with the Ibis picture. Makes them look like they are flying by even more.

  18. Beautiful pictures. We are lucky to get one or two Snowys around here, but four together is unheard of.. Great capture.

  19. I am still smiling. . . those black leggings teamed with yellow shoes go so well with the windswept look!
    Great shots of perfect formation flying and ruffled roof=top sitting, just a wonderful post altogether.

    fluctuations of the scale even though you
    are eating properly, pick three days of the week on which you will always weigh yourself (for example, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday).

  21. The internet is fueling the success of music because it
    can be listened to at any time of the day and anywhere in the world.
    Often, long term schedules with a bit of breathing room work best.
