Deering Estate, Take Two

Here are the photos Eliot Hess took at Alex Nunez birthday party. We celebrated at the Deering Estate in Palmetto Bay, Fl. Watch the flight of migratory birds (Cormorants, Anhingas, and Ospreys) at sunset to safe haven trees ( to protect themselves from predators).


Happy Birthday Alex

Eliot and I attended the most unusual birthday party ever. Our dear and talented friend, Alex Nunez, turned 36 today and invited friends and family to the Deering Estate in Palmetto Bay, Fl, to see the flight of migratory birds (Cormorants, Anhingas, and Ospreys) at sunset to safe haven trees ( to protect themselves from predators).


Alex is a painter, writer, photographer, videographer, musician, podcaster and DJ host ( I’m sure much more). She arranged for her guests to wear headsets so that she could narrate the journey of the birds while we listened to the mix of songs she created for the evening. It was totally awesome. 


Everyone got into the swing of things immediately and started singing and dancing. The event was one-of-a-kind that reminds us that sometimes nature can do the entertaining.

The birthday girl was the MC and DJ.
