Early morning at Circle B Bar Reserve


I got to the reserve just as the sun was coming up over the trees.


The spider webs still had dew on them.


Dew drops were everywhere. There was a chill in the air (meaning 72 degrees).


The black bellied whistling ducks and moorhens were sleeping in.


Even the great blue heron was still sleeping as the sun hit his eyes.


I like the light early in the morning because you can see where all the webs are.

Out on Lake Hancock, I saw this line of cormorants. Why are they so close together in this straight line? They have the whole lake to swim around in. Safety in numbers?


After a while, they all started taking off.


Alone with his reflection.


Grass in the lake.

Sleeping close to the trail.

Finally, the weather is starting to break. Soon everywhere will be posting their snow pictures and I will be happy it’s under 80 degrees. It was 72 degrees when I got to Circle B Bar Reserve early in late October. By 11am it was 85 degrees. It was still a perfect morning and I saw a brand new bird to add to my list. More on that later.

Linking to Saturday’s Critters

  1. Once again a great post however my favourite shot is the grass one. The reflection is excellent. A very still morning at Circle B in the water. The think that must be where the Cormorants roost for the night – the line of them. Have a great weekend.

  2. Looks like a beautiful day. I love the Whistling ducks and the heron shots. And the gator is cool. The turtles are cute. Lovely collection of photos, Dina..Thank you for sharing your post and linking up. Have a happy weekend!

  3. I love the reflecting alligator. I got a shot similar to that with film…back in the 80s!
