Dreary weather this afternoon...but caught the birds out on the pilings in between showers. The out-of-focus seaoat in the foreground provides a blurry frame for the landing pelican and an interesting line to the perched egret. Despite the less than stellar weather, this spot along the beach is generally popular with the birds and often entertaining for the bird-watchers!

Like birdwatching, observing human behavior offers interest, humor and curious revelations...especially, teenagers who usually are more concerned with themselves and their friends than any possible spectators. With the onslaught of open digital communities, even the more astute are unsuspecting of potential 'voyeurs'. Each and every social media participant needs to be responsible (and accountable) for understanding and protecting their privacy rights...and yet, have you ever read and/or understood the terms of service for the online accounts for which you've registered? 3rd Ave S & Gulf of Mexico, Naples, FL
