Brevard County, Florida, USA.
The sight of wintering white pelicans (Pelecanus erythrorhynchos) has made a visit to the Viera Wetlands particularly delightful in recent weeks. I'd take these over real swans any day!

Hurricane Matthew chewed hard on our beaches as it passed last week and very rough high tides continue to threaten the fragile dune. This wasn't much of a morning for photography but I challenged myself to find a picture despite the wind, the rain, and the unfortunate condition of the beach.
The western eye wall of Hurricane Matthew crept menacingly close to us here but most of the structural damage was limited to the docks and boathouses that line the Intracoastal Waterway. We're deeply grateful we were spared and sadly mindful that many, many others experienced much worse from Matthew's fury.
