One of the other day trips that Tammy and I took while in Florida last month was to Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. If you did not see my previous Corkscrew post showing a hungry Anhinga gulping down what I think is a young catfish, check it out here.
Corkscrew is a very birdy place. One of the treats on this particular trip was seeing Painted Buntings at the bird feeders. A crowd of people were waiting near the feeders in order to "ooh" and "ahh" and take photos whenever one of these vivid birds stopped by for a bite. Tammy and I were no different than anyone else. These two photos were my favorites.
