Saturday's Critters #167


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.

These are all sights from one of our Circle B Reserve visits. On the path from the parking a snake and armadillo.


A slider turtle and can you find the gator?



A Red-shouldered Hawk.


Great Blue Heron on nest.


Sandhill Cranes moving along the burr marigolds.



Pretty Green Heron, a common sight at the Circle B Reserve.

  2. oh I like all of them Eileen. I like the green heron. We had one here. This Circle B Reserve must be a wonderful place to live nearby. It is just full of wildlife and birds. I want to go there one day.

  3. yes I did see the gator, was about to tell you when I read your Question. It is well hidden.

    You still have such variety of wildlife, Let´s hope it stays that way.

    Thanks for hosting and have a great week.

  14. Nice photos! That's one sneaky alligator-- maybe wants turtle soup for lunch. We must get out to Circle B one of these weekends. Thanks for hosting!

    ReplyDelete
  15. You have so many interesting critters to show. I love to see them all except for that snake. I will run as far away as possible. Lol! Have a beautiful day.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Nice shots as always. Love the little snake.

  17. Hi Eileen. With all those critters you hardly need any birds. I'd love to see an Armadillo and some of your North American turtles. That heron sure has an extra large nest and although the nest is very exposed I don't suppose much is going to make trouble for a Great Blue. Have alovely weekend and the week ahead and thanks for the chance to join in today.

  19. Hello Eileen, oh I still can't get over seeing the Armadillo - such a strange little creature to be walking our planet. How amazing to see him!
    I loved also to see the Heron's nest - ha ha, not the tidiest but it looks like it'd be warm.
    Cheers and thanks for all your wonderful pics. Enjoy your weekend, bye now xx

  20. Hello Eileen,
    Lovely array of birds and the armadillo is a must!
    I've seen a wild one when I was a kid in Nicaragua...
    I love these Roseate spoonbills, I wish our white ones could that pretty!
    Enjoy your weekend :)

  26. I had a hard time finding the gator. he sure is well hidden. that armadillo is so pretty and I have not seen one in many moons.

    ReplyDelete
  27. So vibrant with all kinds of wildlife.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Beautiful capture on the critters… the slider turtle is indeed daring to move near the gator. I wonder why hawks stood on one foot. I have seen hawks stood on one foot couple of times.

  43. Hello Eileen! As always, wonderful aspects from nature! It looks like a walk in summer to me; a great perfect blue sky and so much sun... Incredible critters, so unusual...
    In my post, I have only an iron horse, a sculpture...so, I'm not sure if it is suitable to be posted/ or linked, this week.
    Best regards and a lovely day and weekend to you!

    I've always want to see a armadillo.
    Coffee is on

    ReplyDelete
  57. Thanks Eileen, for adding your link to this post of beautiful, tropical birds [and other critters] with us at I'd Rather B Birdin'.

    I must ask, and I've been wanting to the last couple of times I've visited...what is that pink blossom in your header [on the left]?

    ReplyDelete
  58. i found the gator, just as i was ready to say i couldn't!! i assume the turtle was dinner. the heron is really pretty!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hopefully the slider turtle did NOT become lunch for the gator.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I always love birds at a feeder. Great shots of all the critters - and that turtle had better watch where it is going.

    ReplyDelete
  61. The armadillo is fun to see - Your photo reminds me of the first time I saw one "in the wild." They really are unusual critters, aren't they?

    ReplyDelete
  62. Hello Eileen
    I've just been watching a TV programme about Ospreys ... and for some reason I thought of a recent blog post of yours when I'm sure you had an Osprey?

    But back to Saturday's post, some lovely photographs again. I do like the one with the Great Blue Heron on its nest, and also the Green Heron, such beautiful colouring.

    I hope your weekend has been good - all best wishes for the coming new week ahead.

    All the best Jan

  63. Love those native Floridians!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hi Eileen,
    fabulous photos of all these different animals. And yes, I find the gator - scary !
    Best regards, Synnöve

    ReplyDelete
  65. A wonderful array of critters Eileen. Thanks for sharing and have a great week :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. I've never seen an armadillo! They look like mini dinosaurs.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Good morning, yep it's Monday but this is my Saturday! I really like armadillos and once while I was driving in Florida one ran right in front of my car, but he/she survived. Thank goodness! Enjoy your week Eileen!

    ReplyDelete
  68. An armadillo! My goodness, Eileen.. you have seen more critters in your lifetime than I think I will ever see in mine. I am so glad you started this meme so that I get to enjoy your world from afar. :) I had to search a bit, but I found that crocodile in spite of a rather fine job of camouflaging. Every photo was wonderful, but I especially liked the way the Blue Heron had wedged the nest so securely between the two tree trunks. Thank you so much and have a wonderful week!

    ReplyDelete
  69. For all but the snake I would gladly August watched and admired. Have a nice week.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Fantastics shots.. Love the armadillo.. Cheers. .

  72. Lovely photos, specially the heron on the nest. And yes, I see the gator!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Love Circle B, wish we lived closer! I've seen and photographed green herons many times in years past, but they are eluding me this season. Oh well, I still have at least a couple of months.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Lovely photos and yes, I do see the alligator. The turtle doesn't seem to notice it though! I haven't seen an armadillo in the daylight in a long time.

    ReplyDelete
  75. always a fan of herons ... that was a tiny snake ... so i am thinking that is ok ... if he/she stays small. i know in my dream world it might. ha. ha!! ( ;

    ReplyDelete
  76. Beautiful captures, Eileen. You get so many wonderful photos!

    ReplyDelete
