Limestone Dragonfly

Sometimes you go looking for birds and all you get is dragonflies. Such was the case Thursday at Limestone Park.

Zoo and Gardens

JoPaul and I went to the zoo and botanical gardens yesterday morning.

The flamingos like to bury their heads and give you the evil eye if you look at them.
The Eye

This was the only one of the Macaws that was out sunning.  
Good Morning

The water lily pond, or reflecting pool, was filled with beautiful lilies. I love the surface tension of the water around the leaf.

These guys love the water lilies, or maybe they love the little things that are hatching out in the pond

I like how the dragonflies pose for you.

Catch and Release

This Great Blue was following a fisherman up and down the beach. At first I thought he was hoping to steal a catch from the guy when he had a fish, but then I saw his plan. He had the catch and release thing down pat. The fisherman finally caught a small fish and the heron just stood there and watched. When the fisherman threw it back into the surf, the Great Blue took off and almost caught the stunned fish before he realized he was back in the water. This time the fish survived, but I'll bet they all don't.

Flippin' Flipper

Dolphins routinely swim from one end of St. George Island to the other, depending on what the tide is doing and where the food is, but I never thought I'd be able to time a shot of one doing this.
