(46 second video)I didn't mean to interrupt the hawk's breakfast, but apparently he didn't like me standing there shooting him while he was enjoying his frog. As you can see in the below photo, he ripped the frog's head off and tossed it aside (lower left of photo), then proceeded to eat the frog from the top down. Do you think he was saving the legs for last because they are the tastiest?

I looked out my living room window early this morning, just to check out what kind of a day it was, and along came several balloons. I took five one-minute videos through the window, before I ran out the door and chased the balloons over to the Champions Gate Golf Club - their favorite destination - where I shot the above photo.
Mmmm, maybe I should have named this blog The Hot Air Balloon Daily Photo Blog.

I spotted several hot air balloons floating south of the Clock Tower Plaza, so I shot them, then decided to take a video of one of them. I got a little impatient and spun around, thinking the balloon was moving too slow, but it did move quite a distance in that minute, as you can see.

[One Minute Video]
The weather was pretty bad here today - lots of thunderstorms, tornado warnings, even some hail. When it calmed down a bit, I stopped by the Kissimmee lake front and caught a few pictures of my favorite Great Blue Heron. That was an Anhinga that buzzed him. I was hoping he'd come back for a second shot, but he flew off to annoy some other bird, lol.

I stopped by the Annual Spring Art Festival in Celebration, Florida yesterday morning and got a few shots of the festivities. As soon as I spotted these vendors I whipped out my easel and palette* and captured this scene so I could create this watercolor when I got back to my studio. Imagine, all those artists displaying their beautiful creations and this is what caught my eye, lol.

I apologize for my absence this week - I've been traveling to and from the west coast of Florida for business purposes and haven't had the time or energy to post anything.
The first photo shows the Clock Tower peeking through the newly sprouted Crepe Myrtle. The Clock Tower Plaza looks so beautiful when the crepes are in bloom. Something tells me that the time on the clock will be fixed one of these days. LOL
The second photo shows a beautiful morning sky and my trusty little pick-up truck. I just passed the 360,000 mile mark yesterday. I love my little Toyota!
