The royal terns were having a feeding frenzy at Fort Desoto in early August. The parents were busy trying to keep the juvenile ones fed.
I found another Harry the hybrid (great blue heron and great egret) at the north beach lagoon. I had heard there were two hybrids at the park but I had only seen one at the fishing pier. This one has more beige and grey than the one at the pier which is more white.
Birds cruising by at the north spit. You can see the boats far off at the tip of the spit already anchoring to party for the day.
Flowers near the parking lot.
Lots of activity going on around the park. It was going to be a busy afternoon.
We only saw a few bison during our drive through Rocky Mountain Arsenal Park.
The view of downtown Denver from the park.
I did not want to leave. Even though we had cold rainy weather the entire trip out here I could so live here. Maybe I’m just tired of the beach and heat after living in Florida for almost 16 years.
I had a window seat on the way home.
I knew I was getting close to home when I saw so much water.
Where to next????
The moon was still up when I got to the park that morning.
Plants and bugs along the trail.
The usual gator and turtles.
Little critters (the frog was in the bathroom).
This was the first time I have seen a plane land on the lake.
Fun stuff at Circle B Bar Reserve.
