Saturday's Critters #162


Saturday's Critters #162



Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.


We visited Pelican Island NWR on 11/11/16, located near Vero Beach Florida. We left early enough in the morning for a stop at Vero Beach to see the sunrise and then it was off for our hike at Pelican Island NWR.

A pretty sunrise at Vero Beach.


A couple of Sanderlings with a Ruddy Turnstone on Vero Beach. The birds almost blend in with the sand and seaweed.


A juvenile Night Heron, my guess is a Black Crowned Night Heron? Do you agree?


A White Pelican and a Cormorant in the distance at Pelican Island NWR.


A Great Blue Heron with a distant Brown Pelican.


A Tricolored Heron seen on the trail at the Pelican Island NWR.


A Great Egret seen on the trail.


The White Ibis were also seen on the trail, some let us walk by others flew off.



There is a memorial for the wildlife refuge system at the Pelican Island NWR

Lettuce Lake Park

Hello,

Is January flying by or what? I wish there was a way to slow down time, it is going by much too quickly. These are images are from Nov 14-16th. I never got around to showing my photos of November's Supermoon and a sunset. Also, our visit to Lettuce Lake Park just outside of Tampa Florida.



Sunset from our neighborhood.


Some clouds over the Supermoon.


November's supermoon reflection on our local lake.



The boardwalk at Lettuce Lake Park, it is a beautiful park. We saw pretty views of the water, trees and boardwalk.



White Ibis on the tree top.


Common Moorhen  with a group of turtles.


A twisted Great Egret across the lake.


A small alligator and a turtle.


Here is my list of thankful things:
Not having to set an alarm.
A Good night sleep.
Being outside in the fresh air and sunshine.
All my life's experiences, good and the bad.



I hope you enjoyed my post and photos. Thank you for your visit and comments on my post. Enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!
