One of the Philippine's premiere tourist destinations, Honda Bay, Palawan island is also known as the "The Last Frontier". Regardless of its dazzling natural beauty, Palawan's 1,770 islands has been one of the least developed holiday destinations in Southeast Asia. So far the lack of commercialism has made Palawan very special, but it is becoming more popular mostly for international divers, as well as adventurers.
Conde Nast Travel readers voted in 2014 and 2015, Palawan Island as the most beautiful island in the world.
Travel & Leisure Magazine readers awarded Palawan as the best island in the world in 2013, 2016 & 2017.

Brown Pelicans are more common in Florida. The Brown Pelican, often spotted on boat docks, concrete, wood pilings and nesting on mangrove islands, serves as one of the state's most iconic images, right up there with sunshine, beaches and palm trees.

As our catamaran made its way slowly up the Rio Dulce, Guatemala towards Lake Izabal, we passed a small mid river mangrove island inhabited by many waterfowl including what I think is the Brown Pelican.
I took this photograph in May 1998, while on vacation on Sanibel Island, Florida. While there I visited the J. N. Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, named after Jay Norwood Darling, who rescued Sanibel Island from the Developers. Jay Norwood Darling persuaded President Harry Truman to Sign an Executive Order to Create the Sanibel National Wildlife Refuge in 1945.
The Photograph show several Birds of various Species.
Sanibel Island is located in Lee County, Florida directly across San Carlos Bay from Fort Meyers Beach, Fort Meyers, FL.
Disclaimer: This photograph was taken in May 1998 with my Minolta Maxxim 5000 35 mm SLR with Color Print Film, when I was just learning photograph, so it is very soft & grainy. I scanned the Negative, and used Photoshop Elements™ to correct the Exposure and Saturation to generate the Digital Digital Image, presented here on flickr™.

After a dreary drizzly day here, I had to distract myself with vacation pics!
No one really knows who actually saw the first pelican, but in 1803, a group of hunters discovered a five-acre mangrove island on the Indian River, near Vero Beach, Florida where thousands of brown pelicans and other water birds would roost and nest. They called it "Pelican Island". These hunters were killing at least 60 spoonbills a day until, a century later (1903), President Theodore Roosevelt came to the island and established it as the first federal bird reservation and the forerunner to the National Wildlife Refuge System.
This photograph was taken at the Natural Bridges State Park near Santa Cruz, California, a West Coast refuge for brown pelicans and other sea birds.

My artistic impression of a Great White Heron from a beautiful image captured by Michael Payton Stewart. Please visit his Flickr site at:
The majestic great white heron is unique to south Florida and the Florida Keys. Nesting occurs throughout the year, with a pronounced peak between November and February. Nesting habitat is primarily on mangrove islands within Great White Heron National Wildlife Refuge and Key West National Wildlife Refuge.
We sat at sunset watching wave after wave of egrets returning to this tree on a tiny mangrove island to roost for the night
As our catamaran made its way slowly up the Rio Dulce, Guatemala towards Lake Izabal, we passed a small mid river mangrove island inhabited by many waterfowl including what I think is the Double Crested Cormorant.
We hope the future brings dawn and not the darkness for the Florida Keys and for all of the Gulf coast. Taken after the gloomy stormy evening in first comment below.
Week 24/52 WEeks for Pix
I actually got up at 6:30 a.m. to get this photo-- and I'm not a morning person, but the dawn is so beautiful and peaceful. After the fact, the bird in the sky, looks like a spec of dust. So the photo might be better with it erased, but it's real, and it was there, and it's part of the sky.
Taken 6/13/10, Uploaded 6/14/10, #6262, Slight exposure enhance, erase a few details-- otherwise SOOC

The Florida Keys still have clear lovely water. Please come and visit. And here is a great web-site to check on the threat from the oil spill in the loop current, headed our way, and the day to day picture: www.keysspill.com/
There was a "dead calm" in the early morning at Merritt Island National Wildlife Reserve. A slight mist was burning off, and the air was still. I learned that these conditions are perfect for no-see-ums and other nasty biting insects to rise up and feed voraciously (on me) ; -))
The mangroves were mini-islands in this picture, and a large mixed flock of birds were in distance.
Merritt Island NWR and Canaveral National Seashore are a vast natural area (over 140,000 acres) that serve as a "buffer zone" for the Kennedy Space Center on Merritt Island. Much of the NWR and seashore are closed during rocket launches. This NWR provides an important sanctuary for migrating birds, and for several endangered plants and animals.

Do you look at water to see the sunsets, the reflections and the colors?
The island is a mangrove island, now in May 2010 very threatened by the Gulf Oil Spill. The US Dept. of the Interior has great up to the minute reporting, with ways to report any damage observed, how to get them your ideas of any technology of what might help, a summary of all the sates and areas affected, how to volunteer help, or vessels, etc.—here: www.doi.gov/deepwaterhorizon/index.cfm
I love to watch the sunsets. I took this photo over a year ago in Key Largo. Just happened to have my camera with me at the right time and place. I never tire of watching the sunset. Even from the same place, it's always a different painting every evening. The sunsets remind me of what really matters in life.
I am not sure where you would launch a kayak, maybe from the only house in this photo. Can you find it? This would be a great place to explore. West of Burnt Store Lakes in Punta Gorda, FL, are mangrove islands edging Charlotte Harbor. In the far off distance you can barely see Cape Haze Aquatic Preserve which is technically part of Boca Grande. This image from a drone flight. youtu.be/cH_RmA15QFc

Deering Estate at Cutler, Miami, FL
Saturday morning I had signed up again for another sunrise shoot at the Deering Estate. Being the start of spring the sun was again rising in the center of the keyhole boat basin.
It was a beautiful still morning, albeit cloudless - a few clouds would have been nice, but oh well, you make due with what you get.
I shot this a few minutes after sunrise as the sun was coming up behind the little mangrove island to the left of the boat basin entrance.
Amazing sunset at a small little mangrove island in Singer Island Florida by MacArthur Park. HDR image created in Aurora HDR software with minor Lightroom adjustments.
Brown Pelican on the Manatee River in Bradenton, FL. Brown Pelicans have brown heads in the Summer and are all white in the Winter. They feed on fish, alone or in groups. They make spectacular dives, flipping from their backs just as they hit the water, then going in bill first. They nest in colonies in trees or on mangrove islands. They are resident in Florida and are very common near the ocean, bays, estuaries, and a few wander inland.

About the Photographs
It was balmy...By the end of each of these 20-30 minute exposures my lens and camera were wet with condensation. It didn't seem that humid and my cameras were acclimated to the outside air. I was surprised by how much moisture was carried off of the water.
