Tuesday’s Exploration

My eventual destination was Hub Stacy’s for lunch and a nice cold Killian’s.  But along the way, up and down Bayfront and down to the Palafox Pier astride my trusty steed, I came across a few interesting beasties.

First – there was this beautiful little Green Heron, who pretended to be a tall reed when he noticed my presence.  I’ve observed in the past that the only time they really look green is when  the direct sun is hitting their wing feathers. This time I was on the wrong side to capture it.

Then there was the GBH, just standing in the marshy grass, down closer to the bridge.

They’re still pretty rare around here, but I did see this female Loon, fishing in the lagoon.female-loonAnd, while riding back the other way I stopped to capture several shots of three young male Ospreys soaring over the top corner of the Gulf Power building. This is just one of them.

And, finally, down at the Pier, this GBH seemed to be saying “Hey kid. Got any fish?”
