The hunt for Mussels
This painting began with our trip to Coya Costa off the coast of Florida in May. I have never seen so many Ibis in one place. They were a delight to watch and photograph. The water off the Florida coast really is this pretty, clear and colorful. The water was too cloudy for snorkeling so I began photographing. I got several shots of this marvelous group of birds in action. They are colorful and bright, active and apparently hungry for mussels. It is a very comical sight seeing them chase each other for the "prize" when one of the birds catches a tasty morsel!
