February 19, 2009

They have the coolest birds in Florida. This heron was walking around the golf course today. If I wasn't fumbling so long trying to get my camera out, I would have had a great shot of an alligator eating something in a pond!

  1. Hey Pam! While I can't help identify the beautiful red blossom in the previous photo, the educator in me is compelled to point out that you were lucky to capture this image of a SANDHILL CRANE, not a heron. While you noticed this big guy (or girl- no plummage differences b/t sexes as in some other birds) in FLA, keep your eyes open at home in the spring, summer and fall; MI is the southern edge of their breeding range!

    And that, boys and girls, ends our nature lesson for this morning! :)
