Another day in paradise

Well, first of all, I want to thank all of you for your comments about the spots on my photo which, as I have come to learn through all of you, that I probably have dust/dirt on my sensor and I should get it cleaned.  My Nikon D7000 comes with a clean sensor button, which I used, but, unfortunately, it did not clear the spots as I first had thought.  So for the time being, since I can not BEAR the thought of parting with my camera, I might try a few of your suggestions to blow it away.

And now, on to more pleasant thoughts.  The photo above was someone on the beach feeding the gulls.  Usually not a good idea if you don't want to get pooped on!

These signs on the streets are new this season.  

I'll post a couple of photos here ....
you judge for yourselves.

So, what do you think?

I don't think they could be accused of any false advertising!

There is a historical site that displays an original home, boat and water tower from the early days of Anna Maria Island.  If you come here, it's worth your time to stop by and view its history.

Of course, I can't wrap up without adding a few birds shots.
This lovely egret was posing so beautifully on our neighbor's dock. 

And because I'm still crushin' on the local pelicans,
 here's a guy who was busy with his morning cleaning.

I was able to get within a few feet of him ...

Before he took notice of me ...

I think he threw a few choice words my way at the intrusion!

Again, I can't thank all of you enough for your comments and feedback 
on my photo "spots".  
I have learned so much through this community.  You are the BEST!

Wishing you an awesome weekend!

As ever,
