We see so much variety here in Florida and many times we see something we’ve never seen before!
But first let’s start with this beautiful dragonfly.
We were driving to a Park for a picnic and rolled down the car window for these photos!
A few of the pretty cattails we saw too. (not on a critter! lol)
Then later when we took a ‘short walk’ in the heat, we spotted this Broad headed Skink.
He made quite a rustle in the grass and actually scared me. He’s much bigger than the usual lizards, anoles and skinks that we usually see and the first one of this type we’ve identified.
I’ll end with some birds we see often here in North Central Florida.
Cattle Egret are common here.
(you can see the difference between the egret and ibis in these 2 photos)
I still get a thrill when I see the Ibis but they are regulars around here too.
We spotted the Ibis at the Inglis Locks.
I know I’ve taken better bird photos than these but these were taken this past week.
I’m joining Saturday’s critters HERE
and I’d Rather B Birdin’.
