Pretty colors along the trail glowing in the sun.
After walking down the trail I looked back and could see all of these broken spider webs blowing in the wind. I did a quick spider check to make sure they were not hitching a ride on me.
A late October walk at Circle B Bar Reserve.

Upclose with flamingos.
Butterflies buzzing around the pretty flowers.
Super sized fish.
A few of the plants at the gardens.
Sunken Gardens is a 4 acre 100-year-old botanical garden near downtown St. Petersburg and one of the oldest roadside tourist attractions in the country. The gardens are located in what was a small lake 10 feet below sea level which is where it got the name. I hadn’t been in nearly 10 years and it’s so close so I thought I’d stopped in one morning for a quick walk. Since it was the end of summer, there weren’t a lot of flowers blooming but the gardens was a tropical oasis once you got inside. A handful of flamingos live there as well. It was a great little walk but so hot. My next trip will be in the winter.
Cute critter. I think he was afraid I was going to steal his nut.
I’m don’t know what this bird is. Any ideas? I think it may be a juvenile.
A woodpecker chewing on this pretty flowering tree.
It was already hot in late April when I stopped by the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo. The summer rains hadn’t started but the heat had already arrived.
Fun critters at Circle B Bar Reserve. The gators were out grinning this morning.
There are still a few butterflies flying around.
A few of the plants in the butterfly garden at MOSI in early November.

Tiny critters at the park.
Creepy critters at the park.
Pesky squirrels at the park (I don’t know who thought that was a “Squirrel proof” feeder. It was hanging next to the nature center.)
Pretty prothonotary warblers at the park.
Just a few things from my walk in late August.
