Big Ol Snapper

I think I’ll call him George. Every time I ride my bike to Turtle Bridge, along the trail from Battery Worth to Fort Pickens, he – and sometimes a couple of companions – bob up to greet me.  Today it was just George.  He obviously expects treats whenever anyone comes to his bridge, so he’s disappointed when all I do is point a camera at him.  Unfortunately,  lot of people feed him bread and other useless stuff which is definitely not good for him.big-snapper


Feeding the baby

I’ve pushed this 55-300 Nikkor lens way beyond what’s really feasible, to crop out this tiny segment. So it’s very pixelated.  There are two babies in this nest. This images follows on the earlier post of the male bringing in the fish. Then he went elsewhere while mom tended to the little ones.
