Manatee and Moss

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Manatee and Moss
Manatee and Moss
A school of about 25 Manatee were across the way in Blue Springs Run near the St. John's River. The wind was blowing and the Spanish Moss was backlite by the sun. Used a CP filter, ISO 1250, F/13, 1/40 sec handheld at 140mm (70-300mm F/4.5-5.6 lens).

Emile, I've never seen Spanish Moss grow in the wild like that. You can buy a little bit at the plant nursery here, and they call it air fern. Lovely sight to behold!

What a soothing image to view and imagine. That must have been very exciting to view the Manatee!

Great job, Emile!
