Across the beach, behind the roped off area for the birds, an osprey is eating on the dead branch.
The water looked so good. I should have brought my swimsuit. I was tempted to go in with my shorts and tshirt on.
Someone getting a view of the beach.
I saw this lady with this cool umbrella hat. I need to get one of these.
One of the reddish egrets taking a break.
I saw this night heron with something in his beak. From far away, it looked like a rock.
When I got closer and zoomed in, I realized it was a crab with his legs missing. Don’t know if he found it that way or if he ate the legs first.
Taken into the sun and lightened up, the reddish egret was posing for me.
A few things on the beach at Fort Desoto at the end of July. It was so hot even the tourists weren’t there. Things are quiet now until Labor Day weekend.
