The lesser scaup stayed in the middle of the lake.
Friends hanging out together.
The geese stick together.
There’s always a green heron at one end of the lake.
I hadn’t been to Crescent Lake Park in downtown St. Pete in a long time. I had to run some errands near there right before Christmas so I brought my camera along and walked around the lake early that morning before my errands. Nothing new there but it was a nice morning out.
The hooded merganser couple hanging out in the channel behind our house.
This great egret was walking around the front yard.
Recently we’ve been seeing an otter swimming around the channel behind our house. We’ve lived here almost 9 years and this is the first time we’ve seen one here. I keep catching him leaving the channel so all I have are back of the head shots.
I found this lone female lesser scaup swimming in a small pond at the entrance to our neighborhood. All we’ve ever had in that pond are mallards so it was weird to see her there alone.
Some of the visitors to my neighborhood recently. All shots except for the last one were taken through the windows.
