Fort Jefferson

Since I have had a lot of interest in my last few photos from Dry Tortugas National Park, here are a couple more. There are not too many better places to relax than this hammock at Fort Jefferson. You can get a cool ocean breeze and have spectacular views of the crystal clear water. You will probably also see a lot of Magnificent Frigatebirds (Fregata magnificens) circling overhead. One interesting fact about frigatebirds is that they feed mainly on fish, and also attack other seabirds to force them to disgorge their meals. Frigatebirds never land on water, and always take their food items in flight.
