Al's 1st Cruise

I recently went on my very first cruise ever out of Miami Florida. We departed on the Norwegian Epic. The sunset was so beautiful when we departed out of Miami Florida.

 The first night we saw the Cirque Dreams and Dinner. The Cirque Dreams was great and the dinner was delicious , surf and turf ! The second  and third day at sea , we had Zumba fitness and many activities to keep us occupied and busy on the Norwegian Epic.

Then we began our adventure into Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Jamaica  is very poor and their school days are divided by shifts. We went to the most  famous waterfall, Dunn's River  Water falls, which is the most famous in Jamaica. We then explored the rainforest and botanical gardens.

The next day we headed to the Grand Caymans. The Grand Caymans are known most for the scuba/ snorkeling under the Carribbean Sea. I was able to get really cool underwater photos of the sea animals I saw.

The last place we stopped  was Cozumel Mexico where I enjoyed the beach and relaxed ! We enjoyed drinks and a big lunch and met some nice people. We had a beautiful forty minute boat ride each way from the ship to Passion Island.

Right Sunrise conditions at Jordan Lake plus good birds

Today I did a sunrise shot with my photography mentor who seemed to be chimping some open his photos today.

This is a Great Blue Heron I took during the sunrise at Jordan Lake Today. We spotted a pair of them doing territorial stand offs which was impressive to photograph today as well.

This was the when the territorials between the two Great Blue Herons were fighting between which territory belonged to them. I got many good shots of this.

This is also a pair of Black Voltures that seemed to be enjoying this beautiful morning grooming and just hanging around the side of Jordan Lake which I also got many shots of them doing their grooming styles for the day.

The other photos I got included a swallowtail butterfly, bees  and a new stump I got there today.
Here is a bee on the same flower that before the swallowtail was on.

Hatching of Prey Mantis!!

Hey Hey its AL back with an exciting news from my house today!  I have successfully, I have had 1 prey mantis egg sack today that hatched finally . I put 4 up in February 2020 and one hatched today which was amazing to watch and I got many pictures of them hatching from the egg sack today.
