How many birds and animals do we miss in the wild because they are so perfectly camoflauged?
I know we miss a lot when we hike Blue Run Park in Dunnellon.
(some we should probably be glad that we don’t see!)
We were finishing up a hike when we stopped to see 2 Ibis in a marshy area near the trail. (I’ll save those pics for another post!)
And when I walked…S L O W L Y…to get a better look (AND photo!)
a limpkin came into view.
He had his prize and he was making a run with it.
I thought it was a fish until I looked at the photos and realized it was a freshwater clam or mussel!
Hubby stayed back and told me to look again and there was a second limpkin that I hadn’t seen!
We rarely see a limpkin and on this hike we saw two! And we’ve never noticed the clam bed!
