Daytona Tonight

Here I am in Daytona Beach, again. It's just a couple of days after the Daytona 500, but most everything is back to normal already. But I did notice that the leaderboard over at the track is still lit up, and it's showing the 208 laps they raced as well as the top finishers. I can almost see this sign out the window of the hotel, but I shot it from a field between the track and the airport. Still not very close, but closer.

So Many Vultures!

I was out at Myakka River State Park last night, and I just couldn't believe how many vultures there were in the air out there. I knew they had lots of vultures, and I've seen lots of them before, but not like this. There were a thousand or more of them in the air at any given time. Keep in mind I shot these with a telephoto lens, not a wide angle. A wide angle lens would have shown birds from one corner of the sky to the other.
