p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Midway Atoll closed for 2013 season!


If you have not heard or if you wanted to go...Midway Atoll closed for 2013 season! What a bummer, my gal comes back this past year saying how great it was and says she wants to go again. Now we both were going to go this next year. She has lots of stunning images and here is one of hers, a Red-tailed tropicbird that flies backward in midair with his courtship display.

Too bad about the park. The bad news is balanced by the good (lovely) image.
