Lots of tiny critters in the flowers at the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo.
The squirrels were busy eating.
A young mockingbird sitting high up in the trees. Not many other birds out in early September.
A flock of anhingas go flying by overhead.
It was hot. The gardens were very quiet with only a few tiny flying critters but I got a good 2 hour walk in that morning.
Little critters at Zoo Tampa in late July.
Even though it was hot the gibbons were swinging back and forth and hooting.
Some of the other fun faces at the zoo.
A bird of paradise almost in bloom.
A cloudy almost rainy day is a good day to go to the zoo in late July. It’s too hot to go on a sunny day. Most of the animals were out moving around the morning I visited for a quick walk. There’s always something different there to see each visit.
Little critters creeping or buzzing around the butterfly garden at the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo.
A few of the blooming things.
The waterfall at the nature center. Years ago I would see green tree frogs hanging around this area but I haven’t seen any in a long while.
Something growing around a tree stump. Looks like icing (of course, I have sugar on my brain).
A tiny oasis in the heat.
