These turtles can live up to forty years, so Tommy is taking precautions and not socialising for a while.
Wishing you all a safe and peaceful weekend.
How could any lady Great Egret resist such a courting display?
Wishing you all an exceptional Wednesday.

Sweet and calm Marsha the Marsh Hare, really doesn’t look as ‘Mad as a March Hare’. Of course, Alice saw her March Hare ‘Through The Looking Glass’, not through her bathroom window, so there’s the difference.
Wishing you all a calm and peaceful Tuesday.
Perry pelican goes for a ‘Blues Cruise’ around the neighbourhood.
Wishing you all a great week.
This Red-shouldered Hawk obviously prefers to take the middle-ground.
Happy Leap-Day to you all.

Hope your Sunday is just as peaceful.
As many of you know, Mr GBH our resident Great Blue Heron is my favourite neighbour, but ‘sshush’, please don’t tell my other wild friends here in Florida. I wouldn’t want them to know that they’re not number one on my list. I thought that today it might be fun to show his many faces.
Mr GBH the hunter, haunting the water’s edge searching for his next fishy victim.
He knows that patience pays off and is usually very successful in his endeavours.
Mr GBH the good husband and home-maker. He takes pride in creating a safe and comfortable nest for his wife and family
Mr GBH the comedian. He obviously has a sense of humour as displayed here by the twinkle in his eye and his “Wow, look at me now!” stance. Maybe he was just sunning himself, but I like to think that maybe he’s bragging just a little.
Mr GBH the deep thinker. He’s able to stand for seemingly and age, doing absolutely nothing. He knows that meditation is good for the soul.
Mr GBH the Supermodel. He can also be a bit of a dandy as he shows off his gorgeous blue-gray plumage. He has that pose worked out to perfection.
Wishing you all a happy Friday and a great weekend.
Pretty in pink and with her distinctive spatula-shaped bill, Rosie is on the hunt for delectables in the shallow waters along the edge of the lake.
For Linda’s‘One-Liner Wednesday’.
This is my 1,000th post here on WordPress. Happy Wednesday, everyone.
I was delighted to get my first sighting of a Green Heron whilst out at the Nature reserve last Sunday, What a ‘Fashionista’ is this striking bird, balancing on slender yellow legs, with his velvet-green back, rich chestnut body, fancy waistcoat and chic dark chapeau. Although he’s quite a small heron, that dagger-like bill looks absolutely lethal. Any unfortunate victim on the receiving end certainly doesn’t stand a chance.
I hope this has been a good week for you all and that the weekend will be most enjoyable. This is my last weekend here in Florida before we leave for England next Saturday.
