A walk after work.

Small alligator in the lake. I’m not sure what that cotton looking stuff is floating on the lake. I’m sure it’s some type of algae?

This turtle was laying eggs in the bushes along the lake.

A dove resting on the mulch.

A juvenile tricolored heron near the boardwalk. He was actually panting from the heat, which makes him look funny straight on.

A young mockingbird looking for food.

Two young ducks sticking together while feeding.  Mom was further behind them watching.

A young grackle screaming for mom to feed him.

A really small alligator under the boardwalk. You can really see the algae here. It looks like someone threw cotton blankets in the lake.

Pretty things hanging off the plant.

Iris in bloom. The courtyard at the bell tower was full of these.

Could you do this?  I watched this guy climb the tree and then trim it with a saw while holding on.  He had a harness on but still, you have to be pretty confident of your footing to do this for a living.

An after work walk around the lake near the office. I was looking for baby black neck stilts but saw a lot of other things as well. I found the babies but will post those later.

    I love them all but my favourite is the dragonfly you shared on MoM. What a delicate, intricate design the wings make….beautiful! I also have never seen a mocking bird…. now I am singing the song Mocking Bird (i think Waits). Thanks for sharing on the new Mandarin Orange Monday:)

    Your photos are wonderful as usual, I can’t imagine being so close to such fascinating nature. It seems like there are a lot of hungry mouths looking for food. I like the aqua dragonfly too, and the purple iris is really alluring.
