I guess he was looking for fish.

He was hovering over the water. I never did see him catch anything.

White pelicans were still floating in the big lake in early May.

A limpkin family was down the trail.

They had two babies.

Just a few things along Alligator Alley trail at Circle B Bar Reserve. The other main trail was still closed due to alligator mating and babies. Things were winding down at the reserve. Babies were growing up. It was hot but there was a small breeze on the dock coming from the lake. It was a quiet place to hang out for a while before heading back to my car.

  7. The photo of the Snowy egret you started with the post is amazing, but after looking at all of them 4 or 5 times they are all quite amazing. What a wonderful post.
