After leaving Katies, just 3 boats on the way down River to Blackwater Creek. Two kayaks, and a motor boat, proceeding slowly.
The gators were lethargic, not moving off the bank. So were the belted kingfishers, relatively speaking. One stopped long enough that I got three pics. On three different perches. Here are the best two.
Back on the Wekiva, paddling up River.
As I was taking turkey photos, I heard voices behind me. So, I paddled quickly to stay ahead of them. I'd rather be the one disturbing the wildlife.
Don't know what this guy has on his lawn, but the turkeys and sand hill cranes seem to like it. They were here the last time I was.
Saw two kayakers as I approached Katies Landing. They were gone by the time I landed, after taking a detour, exploring the shallows on the west side of the River.
