The time change was welcome, I could have slept longer, but knew I had to get going if I wanted to finish before dark. So, I was out of bed a little after 8, in the kayak on the Hillsborough River at Trout Creek Park at 10:20.
The first two pics below are the same alligator, the third, five minutes up River.
In the morning, the vultures were in lower branches, and on the ground. It was windy, I wonder if they don't like wind, or their talons don't grip as well as other birds. I usually don't take vulture photos, as they are omnipresent, and not very attractive. But, this scene called for a photo.
The spoonies and there friends were on the back side of an island just down River of Trout Creek. The back side was impassable, so I paddled around it in the main channel.
