Color at Hollis Garden in Lakeland in early May.
I thought these lily pad were cool holding the water in their leaves. Lake Mirror in downtown Lakeland was full of them.
There’s a reason they are called “common” moorhens. They are everywhere and they have tons of babies starting in the spring.
I noticed this baby grackle screaming at his Mom for food. He was hopping around behind Mom but I think she was trying to get him to feed himself. He was old enough to be able to do that.
Across Lake Morton a new building was going up. The flags would have looked very magestic if they weren’t so worn out.
I don’t alway stop at Lake Mirror after a walk at Circle B Bar Reserve but this morning in early May I only did a short walk at Circle B and then went over to Lake Mirror. I was in the mood for some spring flowers that were in bloom at Hollis Gardens which sits right on the lake.
You have an eye for beauty and for detail.
Pretty shots! The photo of the bean pod is particularly striking, as are the lily pad photos.
