Birds are everywhere on the island….and included are some of the better photos we took of them:
a Bald Eagle:
Here I’ve cropped and closed-in on the same photo. Look at the size of that beak! He must be calling out, with his mouth open and tongue extended:
Heron at sunset…..what a perfect silhouette, unmistakable.
Not sure what kind of bird this is, but do love this photo:
Pelican cruising for dinner:
Every year, this heron is fishing in the very same spot on the shore.
We also saw 3 manatees swimming in the canal, but they are so quick to appear and then disappear. This is the best photo we managed:
This a Wolf spider….harmless, but the biggest I’ve ever seen. That is a 2 1/2” tall tape measure case next to him.
Next up….fish tales.
