Good one!
PS: Just a little thing to try. When there is an overabundance of light, try a few shots with your camera in the "snow" setting. It sometimes does wonders to the colors, light and contrast.

I almost expected to hear some ghostly voices... great catch here.

Do the birds come for a banquet when they open?

I like the snow setting trick - maybe learned something very useful and new (to me) for Florida sunshine shooting. Seems like this same photo would be amazing in BW with some good strong contrasts.
