One Single Impression: Live Water

Magnificent Frigatebird

sootie terns protect
magnificent frigates soar
nest sanctuary
man o’war seeks food
water provides all


Bush Key, home to nesting sootie terns

If you ever have the opportunity, Dry Tortugas National Park, 70 miles west of Key West must be a destination! This was a highlight of  a recent trip to the Florida Keys. Bush Key is part of the park and currently closed for nesting.  I was privileged to see a man o’war in the waters when I was there. And of course, a moment without my camera!

It is fitting for today’s prompt at One Single Impression.
