There was an abundance of visual stimulation at Butterfly World. Besides tons of butterflies fluttering by you, there were tiny birds whizzing by as well. Lots of bright colors going by. The picture in the middle is of two birds that had landed on a lady’s head. One had landing and was picking through her hair like he wanted it for nesting material. The other one landing and they were fighting over her head. After a few seconds, they both took off. She was just glad they didn’t poop in her hair.
There are several osprey nests along the beach at Fort Desoto. Osprey were flying all around me. Adding sticks to the nest and eating breakfast. It looks like to me that the osprey in the last picture is wishing he had some tartar sauce.
This great egret was skipping the sushi and going for a little lizard tartare.
Several ruby throated hummingbirds were eating breakfast from an agave plant.
Noisy black hooded parakeets were screaming across the park.
The usual stuff at Fort Desoto Park in early May. Except the hummingbirds, those are a special thing to see only during migration.
