Florida, October 2016


Hello,


I may not be blogging as much in the near future. I've been busy and trying to have some fun times. But, I have some images from Florida to share, I hope you enjoy.  The moon, Little blue heron on neighborhood watch, possible Palm Warbler, Purple Gallinule on neighborhood watch, moon and skywatch over our lake.

















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


Here is a list of linky parties for part of the week, I hope to see you there.


Thanks to Theresa @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences.
Thank you to Sylvia, Yogi and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday.

I still love your moon photos very much... but why do we always see its same face??!!

Keep well, kind regards :)
