A short paddle on the local lakes this morning. Shortened on the front end, as I forgot my camera, went back home to get it. Shortened on the back end by rain. 90 minutes. Got home, deleted the bad photos, 71 left, 52 which I will share. Here we go.
Green heron, mallards and limpkins on Lake Maitland.
Wood ducks, osprey, and anhingas
Great egret, more wood ducks, and a turtle. The latter in Lake Nina.
More anhingas, and the covered bridge in the canal to Lake Minnehaha.
More of the same, plus a moorhen.
Great blue heron and ibis. More anhingas.
The last few times on these lakes, the anhingas weren't as abundant as usual. Not so today.
|Red winged blackbird|
Back thorough the canal and Lake Nina.
Return to Lake Maitland.
Or does it? It is moving towards the white background. Landed shortly after this photo, taken at 10:40, as the rain fell.
