Blackwater Creek, Wekiva River, to the St Johns
Juvenile black crowned night heron.
Some people say this log looks like an alligator, I agree. There were no more than 5 boats on the Wekiva. All power. All, if they were moving, going slow. One crew, who I saw both coming and going, asked if I had seen the manatees. They had sat and watched them while they, the humans, had lunch. My the time I got to the spot, the manatees had left. Or just held their breath until I left.
Took a break on the high ground about 40 minutes later. No bears, just spiders.
Speaking of bears, the dead one had drifted off one snag, onto another.
