Key Largo

Key Largo today isn’t anything like I remember it from the 1948 film of that name staring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Today the weather was perfect — in the mid 70s — and I didn’t see any gangsters that looked like Edward G. Robinson. Instead I saw birds.

Like this one that I saw at the John D. Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park on Key Largo:

At Dagny Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park I saw turkey vultures overhead:

I stopped on Key Largo to see birds and eat dinner in a fish restaurant en route from home in Boulder to Key West, Florida, where I will be staying for a few days. I flew from Denver to Miami, where I rented a car. The day started well before sunrise for me, but I saw it at Denver’s airport.

    Hello David,
    I lost track of you for the past 3 years (I moved) and tonight I found you again. Love all your bird photos, but had to tell you that I caught a Turkey vulture on tree on my street a week ago and was amazed at its size! They are graceful fliers too!
    I will enjoy keeping up with your photography!
