I couldn’t find a tag on this really cool plant. Love the hairs sticking up on the newer ones. I realized that the older ones that had broken open had red bugs in them.
Little critters at Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales in early June.
A hopper hiding in the dirt.
It was good to be out even if it was hot in central Florida. The gardens had recently opened back up and I had a rare Monday off so I drove over to spend the morning walking around. There wasn’t a lot of birds around but still lots of things to look at.
A leftover Easter bunny eating his breakfast.
The eagle has landed. After being absent all summer, the eagle is back in his usual winter Saturday morning spot across the lake.
I saw this weird stuff growing out of the tree. It looked like it could be merengue but I’m guessing some kind of lichen.
I was excited to see another baby deer at the park. Mom and baby stayed pretty far back in the woods. These were taken from the parking lot and heavily cropped so they are a little blurry.
The teenage buck is still hanging around the family.
The older baby was feeding close by the family. Her spots are getting a little fainter.
These were all taken in late September.
