A beautiful sunrise over the Indian River Friday morning.
An Osprey on a post near my home...what are you lookin' at???
One of the many Red-shouldered Hawks that hang out near my work. I don't usually take my camera to work...I'd be too tempted to go take pictures of the birds...but I did Wednesday as the plane carrying Space Shuttle Endeavour was going to be flying over head. I happened to pick the wrong side of the building to look for it and missed it. Oh well, at least this hawk flew up next to me:)
This was one of the seven Red Knots that were foraging in the surf along the Atlantic when we made a visit to Jetty Park.
Did this Laughing Gull really catch a fish of its own...or did the gull confiscate it from a tern....
While in Lakeland a few weeks ago, I took a sunrise walk at Circle B Reserve. It is such a beautiful place to visit.
While we mostly saw waders and a few hawks, there were plenty of these spiders around. I was glad I didn't accidentally walk into on of these webs!
I saw this young male White-tailed Deer along the side of the road heading out to Moccasin Island on Friday. I'm thinking it might be the same one I saw and posted photos of on 9/8/12 as it was in the same location. Usually by this time of the morning you don't see the deer wandering near this road. I ave to wonder if something may be wrong with this fellow. We stopped a little ways up the road to watch him and take a few photos. He didn't seem to acknowledge our vehicle, but I figured with the first click of the shutter he would take notice, but he didn't seem to hear anything. Out of curiosity, I whistled to see if the deer would respond and it did not.
I know I'm really focused when I'm hungry...maybe that was the case.
Finally when we drove right past him, he looked at us, but did not run. I hope this beautiful boy is okay.
Not much happening at the wetlands. We did have fun watching a pair of Crested Caracara, but I'll save that for my next post.
We found this well hidden Bittern doing its best to blend right in.
Well, this has nothing to do with birds,but...a pair of Donkeys have appeared near our highway exit...we couldn't resist a visit. They are so sweet!!!
Have a great weekend!
