Florida Variety

I am linking up Camera Critters and I'd-Rather-B-Birdin.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's in blogland..

For my post this week I have a  variety of birds and a few lizards we saw while in the Florida Keys.

Piping Plovers, Ruddy Turnstone, Willet and Sanderlings


Anole and Iguana



Magnificent Frigatebird, Orb Spider, flock of White Ibis

The Palm Warblers were being seen all over Florida and the bottom right shot is a female Prairie Warbler.

I hope you enjoyed my critter post. I hope everyone has a happy weekend. Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your comments. To see more beautiful photos and cute critters

  35. Love that Palm Warbler at the bottom left of your collage images!! The lighting gives the photo much drama. As for the Piping Plover, I read on one of our kiosks here in our area they're rare. And yet, I have not seen one. Hope to soon.

    Great image shares.

    I know that you don't like word verification but it is the only way to cut out those pesky spam and advertisers from making comments. I had to resort to WV as I just had too much extra work deleting them on my blog. Now I am spam free!
    Blogging certainly has changed from the old days!

  53. Obviously we love birds:) But the critter finds are awesome as well. It's always tricky figuring out how to put them all together:) I like how you create the mosaics to keep them all on one shot.
