Gopher Turtle’s favorite FOOD

Food : prickly pear cactus1After photographing this cactus I discovered that this Prickly Pear Cactus is a favorite food of Gopher Turtle’s.

The turtle in the background on the left side went unnoticed until the photo was viewed on the computer.

WEATHER

Winter is the dry season in Florida which in WEATHER speak means that it rains just not much or often.

WEATHER #1 Brush fire Lake Hancock

This year there is a 7 inch rain deficit that has just rolled the dry season into fire season.

It doesn’t take much for a controlled burn to get out of hand.

Fortunately this fire was not one that became out of control for days.

Did you know that Sandhill Crane YOUNG offspring are called colts?

Recently I learned the YOUNG Sandhill Cranes were not chicks but are referred to as colts. 

What a treat to be so close to photograph this Sandhill Crane with her 2 colts standing beneath her while they go about their lives.

FRIENDSHIP and LOVE all rolled up together

At times the line between FRIENDSHIP and LOVE is nonexistent

About 10 feet above the ground in a crotch of a cypress tree concealed by Spanish moss was this family of raccoons taking an afternoon siesta.

What does SPRING mean to you?

To me SPRING is the season of renewal and new life.

During the past several weeks I’ve been visiting Circle B Bar Reserve photographing migrating birds and other Florida wildlife. One of my favorite sights has been watching this immature Great Blue Heron in its nest high above the ground. It was surprising to find it still clamoring for food this week it looks as if it shouldn’t be long before it can fly and hunt for its own food.
