More About Bday Manatees

My last post about all the amazing manatees that have made many of my birthdays memorable, drummed up a lot of interest. I thought I’d delineate which manatees and friends showed up on which of my Feb. 11th birthdays these past few years 2011-2018 and tell a bit of the story behind the shots. Of course I’ve seen manatees on birthdays before these years, but this is the best number for an impactful photo collage.

Manatees – they are charismatic, enthralling, and undeniably cute marine mammals! Added to this, the beauty of their warm winter springs home is unparalleled. All this equals the possibility of stunning underwater prints to enjoy!

New Oceangrant Blog

This will be the first post on my new Oceangrant blog. There is a feature in my new PhotoShelter account that pulls in this WordPress feed. Interestingly, it doesn’t pull in the first post (maybe it considers the first post to be a test post)? So this will be my first post, with more interesting and eloquent posts and lots of photos to follow. As I understand it this will not be pulled into the feed on my PhotoShelter site, but I will post a manatee photograph just as a “feel-good” gesture. Oddly, it is how I feel after setting up all this stuff!  Best, Carol
