River Friends - Black and White Wednesday

We regularly see manatees and enjoy watching them feed nearby. There were at least seven in this group and were very sedate except when two decided to move on. You may not be able to tell from the picture but they can swim very fast.
Moving fast......

A large one feeding:

Two feeding, barely keeping their backs near the water's surface:


It was a cloudy morning, there were two weather fronts hanging over our area for a few days. It did make it "seem" cooler, if you call 90 degrees cooler!

View many wonderful photographers black and white photos at The Long Road to China.

I'd love to see a manatee that close up! Very cool shots! Happy Wednesday.

I am so jealous that you see manatee. I have never seen one. I was actually starting to think that they are mythical, like unicorns.
