Four Birds Sun Bathing

This picture was taken on Paradise Island Nassau with my old and trusty MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA (DiMAGE X). So, that accounts for the somewhat lower resolution image. But I still enjoyed sneaking up on them and catching a few shots. I couldn’t believe the just stood there and occasionally re-positioned themselves just out of my…

I’ve been negligent in posting out these fun images.  The original photo was taken at the Renaissance Festival in the Phoenix Arizona area.  I shared the images with my good friend TB and she in turn shared then with her good friend Joyce.
