Viera Wetlands, Brevard County, Florida, USA.
A large flock of Pelecanus erythrorhynchos has been entertaining the crowds this week at the Viera Wetlands. These two are squabbling but in more cooperative moments large groups fish in unison and look truly more poetic on the lake than any swans.
This is the view of SpaceX Launch Complex 40 as seen from the ITL causeway. ITL is an acronym for "integrate-transfer-launch" but it seems that back in the Titan III days the road also was called the Titan causeway. The name still may be in use today - please drop me a line if you know.
The payload for this May 27, 2016 launch is the Thaicom 8 commercial communications satellite built by Orbital ATK.
What appear to be rocks along Florida's east coast are actually living reefs built up over time by tiny marine bristle worms of the family Sabellariidae. The Sabellariid worms build protective tubes out of sand, ultimately forming large colonies that grow into mounding reefs. The reefs sometimes are exposed at low tide, creating tide pools and providing a habitat for a variety of other marine organisms. Please don't tread on the worms!
