Some Days are Better than Others!

Yes, indeed, some days are better than others! For some time now the Piper Glen Golf Club patrons have been treated to a near daily show of an American Bald Eagle. He visits between 10am and 2pm on the days that he comes and his obvious purpose is to fish the lake next to the 18th hole and in plain view of the lunch bunch. The dining room staff have been kind enough to telephone me when he shows up and I jump in my car and in 5 minutes I am on the patio outside the Clubhouse armed and ready. He is a magnificent bird and my shots do not do him justice but I will keep trying. Notice the fish in the talons of the eagle in the middle image. Enjoy!

One last peek into the Alligator Farm

Came into the St Augustine area around 11am and couldn't help stopping to see how much activity had changed in a little over a week. The activity has certainly picked up there with Great Whites and Snowies setting up housekeeping and preparing for families. There were also a couple of Wood Storks and at least 3 Roseate Spoonbill couples in addition to lots of Green Herons and Night Herons. Things will be jumping here in a month. Wish I could come back!! The spoonbills were busy splashing in the lake, to our delight!!
