Zinnias # 2 at Stony's

Could not put two sets of White Egrets in a row.
Seperating them by a red flower would be a good contrast.
Was trying a lower f-stop and did not get the depth
I usually like.

Flying Egrets

Quit waiting for another white egret to show up.
Took the boat out in the Lynnhaven area and found
several that wanted to have their picture

Bonaire N.A., Sea Salt production

The word salary derives from the Middle English salaire,
from the Latin word salarium, a payment made in salt.
The Romans paid the army in salt.
A great book, New York Times best seller list Salt: A World History by Mark Kurlansky, tells why the world is the way it is today because of salt.

2000 years ago this pile of salt would make you a wealthy person.
Beautiful sky in Bonaire. Always very clear and blue.
