On the trail at Fort Desoto. A butterfly and some kind of fruit that I have never noticed before. The red really stuck out in all of the green right on the trail.
A snowy egret trying to steal a snack from a fisherman.
Some of the birds near the fountain includes a loggerhead shrike, a female summer tanager and an ibis.
Dolphins were swimming around the pier.
Looking across the lagoon, lots of different shorebirds. The middle shot has black skimmers in the front and the bottom picture shows red knots.
It was the first week in May and the park had just recently opened. I got there early and was leaving before 10am and shot this from the pier. The beach was filling up fast. Time for me to head home.
