PhotoHunt: Warm


The PhotoHunt theme this week is "Warm"

Okay, I was planning to save this one for my other blog under the category of "Walking Fashion Statement", but then I thought you might enjoy seeing how some South Floridians stay warm when the wind chill goes down to, oh, I dunno, 79 degrees?



Don't you love the boots?



For the nature-lovers, I give you the flock of migrating Turkey Vultures warming themselves on the roof of the old Dade County Courthouse in downtown Miami:



You guys in the chilly Northlands look for the first Robin to herald Spring - We look for the first Vulture on the Courthouse roof to herald Winter and a promise of heat and humidity going down to tolerable levels! Click on this one for a better view of sunbathing Vultures...:-)

Have a great weekend!

I love the vultures on the roof - perfect basking spot for them.

The boots just look insane (from a 'northern' perspective!)

Furry spats, quaint but surely warm.

I have trouble thinking of Vultures sitting about like pidgeons or starlings.

I know what you are saying about Floridians when it gets "cold". I wrote a post a few weeks back and I thought they were a little silly. Great shots :)

Those boots look a little warm for Florida-perhaps she has cold feet all the time? : )
Great building-turkey vultures-eeeekk!
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

That's some getup!

We did not turn on the heater last night, and when I got up it was only 68 degrees in my house! Brrrrrrr.

We're freezing today, but we don't think Mom would wear those boots even if it got to 0 degrees!!

Sniffie and the Florida Furkids

We are not sure about those boots. We do not care for fur, except on critters...but we love that picture of the Vultures on the Courthouse roof! Very interesting!

You gotta wonder about the turkey vultures on the courthouse.

Love the fashion statement. I'll bet they are plenty warm.

June said...

I think I know that woman in the first shot from my work days at the jail :-) And oh yes, the vultures and the courthouse...I had forgotten. Good takes on the theme!
