Looks pretty big..
I swear he was almost as tall as me! Given that I am only 5 ft tall, it’s not much of a stretch!
In all seriousness, I do think he was about 3.5 ft or so. Pretty impressive fella!
Tall enough 🙂
Great motion. I love these birds!
Me, too, Lisa! He was trying to get food out of the bag of a guy that was fishing, and because of that he stayed around for a long time. I just kept on shooting pics. So fun!
Doesn’t he look kind of prehistoric? Like a pterodactyl? I love him . ..
He does! Nothin’ but love for this guy. I was so excited to be able to spend quality time watching him
Beautiful picture, great capture! Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, Cecilia!
That is one heck of a big bird. Is this guy clumsy on take off and landing, or is he coordinated? He really doesn’t look it. Man, he is beautiful, though! Great photograph, Laurie!!! ❤
Thanks Amy. I didn’t get to see him fly off, but I sure got to watch him walk around. He let us watch him for a good 15 minutes … he was focused on food 🙂
Thank Edith! He gave me great opportunity.
Love this guy. I took a look at the other image and couldn’t decide which I like better. But as someone above mentioned, he does look a bit prehistoric!
wonderful beach photos…I scrolled down! I’ve never been to Sarasota other than to stay over night. Didn’t see much of the area so this was great!
