Description Taken in The Ponce Inlet, Florida area. Original photography by Deborah Benoit. Texture has been added and Topaz used in editing.********************The osprey is the second most widely distributed raptor species, after the peregrine falcon. It has a worldwide distribution and is found in temperate and tropical regions of all continents except Antarctica. In North America it breeds from Alaska and Newfoundland south to the Gulf Coast and Florida, wintering further south from the southern United States through to Argentina. It is found in summer throughout Europe north into Ireland, Scandinavia, Finland and Scotland, England, and Wales though not Iceland, and winters in North Africa. In Australia it is mainly sedentary and found patchily around the coastline, though it is a non-breeding visitor to eastern Victoria and Tasmania. There is a 1,000 km (620 mi) gap, corresponding with the coast of the Nullarbor Plain, between its westernmost breeding site in South Australia and the nearest breeding sites to the west in Western Australia. In the islands of the Pacific it is found in the Bismarck Islands, Solomon Islands and New Caledonia, and fossil remains of adults and juveniles have been found in Tonga, where it probably was wiped out by arriving humans. It is possible it may once have ranged across Vanuatu and Fiji as well. It is an uncommon to fairly common winter visitor to all parts of South Asia, and Southeast Asia from Myanmar through to Indochina and southern China, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines.
Deborah Benoit, Daytona Beach Member Since January 2010 Artist Statement Born and raised in Burlington, Vermont Deborah was always the one with the camera, ready to capture that special moment. It wasn't until after her family was grown that she became more serious about photography mastering the digital camera. ...... Her passion evolves around all nature but especially birds. Sitting and watching them, capturing their essence and spirit is just wonderful. It always amazes her to find so many injured creatures yet they still go on. Digital Art, created by fractal programs on her computer occupies her time when she is not taking pictures. Now residing in Daytona Beach, Florida, she spends most of my time photographing Florida's natural beauty and enjoying its peaceful energy. Hope you enjoy her creations. ....... Let the energy surround you, filling your heart and soul. Thank you for stopping in. Come again and bring a friend.
