Trip to the Reserve

Category: My Butterfly Garden | Posted: Sun Oct 28, 2012 11:49 pm

Since I managed to lay 7 yards of compost on Saturday, that I thought would take two days I decided to head out early today to a local boat ramp on the lake that is home to many local species of birds. With Butterfly season winding down it keeps me occupied.

It was freezing! 60 degrees, and very windy. After the sun came up everything came to life. Deer, Turkey,Stork, and Bald Eagle to name a few.

While taking it all in I managed to take a few decent shots.I have always wanted to photograph a caracara but never had the chance to catch one. Well today was the day.

Here are a few shots from the trip.

Wonderful shots Viceroy. I'm so glad you got that compost laid so quickly otherwise we'd never have seen your pictures.

Wow, lovely shots Viceroy. Please enlighten me on the Caracara?

Thank you folks,it was a great weekend.
Frank, the crested caracara is a predatory bird from the southwest, and Florida, it's in the falcon family.
Also will scavenge and steal for a meal.
