The above image is one of my favorites.  I visited the Joe Overstreet Landing on the shore of Florida’s Lake Kissimmee in 2008 and 2014.  I know I’ve posted about this place before, but it’s one of the best spots on the Great Florida Birding Trail – particularly if you take an airboat ride to see snail kites, limpkins, bald eagles, American bitterns, and the like.

These sunset images are from the landing, where you can pitch a tent or park an RV for a very reasonable fee.

Day is done,

gone the sun,

from the lake, from the hills, from the sky;

All is well,

safely rest,

God is nigh.

These are the sandhill cranes used in the montage
