pretty bird

Last weekend I went to visit Adam in Tampa.  On my last night in town we went for a walk around his new neighborhood just to take a look around.  Towards the end of our walk it was getting dark out and as we were rounding a corner we heard a loud and somewhat scary "ca-caw!" The further we walked the louder it got and we were looking at each other like "what the heck IS that??!"  We soon found out....
I'm so glad that I grabbed my camera on the way out of the door!  I couldn't believe that this beautiful, HUGE bird was just hanging out.  I kept expecting it to fly away, but it didn't...it just sat there ca-cawing (very loudly) and checking us out...

I wanted to get closer so that I could get a better shot, but I was too afraid that the bird would come after me!! He didn't like my flash very much, so after shooting this one last shot we went on our way....very cool!

I thought we were exercising, not taking a look around. I guess it turned into looking around when you brought your camera along. Ha!

I was gonna say Emma when you took your camera you were hoping to find something to take a picture of!
