First of all, Happy Birthday!!

Second, you've got your gifts of nature, and they are quiet lovely. The last shot of the gator looks unrealistic, seems like his head was pasted on the lake LOL

Thanks for sharing and have a great b-day!

Thank you for the B-day wishes and the kind comments on the photos.

The early morning solitude...add a few birds...some surf......a good cup of coffee....a Nikon D300.......adds up to a great gift to myself. :biggrin:
