Summer critters on summer flowers

Lots of little critters buzzing around at Lettuce Lake in August.

Not many birds but I did see a juvenile northern parula and a red-eyed vireo.

This was the last time I saw the swallow-tail kites, in mid-August. One was flying over the boardwalk. They all left town to head south for the winter.

A quiet moment in the woods





Critters at the park.


I was standing on the boardwalk looking for birds and heard a noise in the leaves. Thinking it was a squirrel, I didn’t look down right away. When I did, this was staring up at me. ¬†She was so close I had to pull out my phone to take a picture.

I stood there quietly and watched the deer roam around for a few minutes. The mom and older baby were having a bonding moment. They kept an eye on me but went about their day.

Tiny things on flowers

It’s the middle of summer and not many birds around. I can a least find some little critters at the Florida Botanical Gardens to take pictures of. This was in late June before the summer rains started. It was fun to see those teeny tiny inchworms on the pink flowers. I struggled to get a good clear picture of them. I really needed my macro lens but had not brought it with me. It was a great morning even though it was hot.
