Was I being watched? I noticed all of the different art faces that are on on the trees at the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo.
Pretty things blooming in July.
You can usually find alligators, bunnies and turtles at any park in the area.
It was a quiet morning for birds though. I’ve been working from home since mid-March so I’m still trying to get out of the house on Saturday mornings for a long walk even if the wildlife is scarce this time of year.
There were lots of bunnies running around the Botanical Gardens.
This young moorhen ran across the sidewalk in front of me. Soon the rest of the family followed. They were heading for the tiny pond with the fountain in it.
They were cooling off under the fountain. I really wanted to jump in there with them.
The common green heron.
The squirrels were chowing down.
A few monk parakeets flew in to a tree right over my head.
An almost grown osprey was screaming the entire time I was at the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo. The nest is high up in a utility tower and the screaming echoed all over the gardens. He was probably screaming for the parents to bring him food and the parents were waiting for him to finally get off the nest and get his own food.
