Thank You, Gerardo!! Making videos is interesting, but sometimes they do not turn out very good. Lol I like your diving videos with the sharks. That must be a rush. Have you tried to video them yet? I haven't got the nerve to go that deep into the water. If you are on you tube add me. Thanks for the kind comments, Gerardo!!

Thank you, Tracy!! Hopefully, I will get back out to see them again, before it warms up and they head back to the Gulf of Mexico.

Thank You, Palaimon. They come inland during the cold weather. I don't go near them, because the state government and Manatee rescue operations advise not to touch them or bother them. So I just take photos from the banks or shoreline.
