I caught the barred owl just waking up from his morning nap at Circle B Bar Reserve in early March.
An osprey hovering close to the trail.
My favorite tree twins in the middle of the lake. Here it still was missing it’s leaves. Bald cypress trees lose their leaves in the winter here in central Florida.
The sun was already high up in the air by the time I walked down Marsh Rabbit Run.
A quiet early walk at Circle B Bar Reserve.
Color on the trail.
Crawling critters including that tiny alligator right on the trail.
Small birds along the trail. A green heron, a house wren making a face at me and then chirping and a blue headed vireo.
Having a snack.
A perfect start to a day at Circle B Bar Reserve.
The usual birds at Chesnut Park in mid-December.
A sleepy alligator.
Color from across the lake. It finally looks like fall as the cypress trees start to turn.
The sun peaking through along the trail. These were taken with my phone.
It’s not often I see two pileated woodpeckers on the same tree. I took this with my phone since I couldn’t fit both of them in with my 300mm lens and I couldn’t back up into the swamp.
Color along the boardwalk at Lettuce Lake Park.
This squirrel was chowing down on what looked like a nut from the cypress tree.
The usual birds at the feeder near the nature center.
Along the lake and in the swamp.
