Someone is leaving bird seed along the boardwalk at Chesnut Park.
I think the squirrels eat most of it.
Lots of little gators under the dock.
It was close to Easter.
A northern parula trying to hide from me.
A tiny grasshopper. Soon central Florida will be over run with these guys.
for bringing home fish for every meal. The wood storks at the rookery in north Tampa were flirting and making nests. Some couples were already sitting on eggs.
This couple, one of many, were getting busy making babies.

Royal terns and willets on the sea wall across from the boat ramp at Davis Islands.
Pelicans and a great egret hanging around the island.
The view of Tampa across from the Davis Islands yacht basin right before sunset.
Watching the sun go down early in the quarantine in late March.
It was a quiet night. Most people were sitting in their cars watching the sun go down instead of getting out and walking around the small beach there. I kept saying I was going to get back over there but I just never did.
Right before everything closed I stopped by Horsepower for Kids, the non-profit rescue farm to walk around and just be outside. The weather was still cool. They strictly rely on donations and admission fees to feed the animals and now that they are closed they are hurting for funds.
The turtles in the pond were coming up on the bank to sun themselves.
Funny faces staring back at me.
A capybara taking a dip. These guys are from South American and this one was a pet that someone realized they didn’t want after all and gave up to the farm.
On my way back from my road trip to central Florida to look for the whooping cranes, I stopped along a quiet rode when I saw the above sandhill crane family far out in a cow pasture. The two babies were already big and could keep up with the parents. These are all extremely cropped pictures.
The cow was looking at me like I was crazy.
Central Florida is full of cow pastures and citrus groves.
