Nature Walks – Green Cay & Wakodahatchee Wetlands – March 2019

It’s March and it’s nesting time for many of the wading birds in SE Florida.  Above is a shot of a posturing male Great Egret in breeding plumage and colors.

It was a cool day; most people had sweaters or even coats on, except me.  I relish the coolness… upper 50’s, I think.  And the sunshine was brilliant making shooting challenging in the low angled sun.

These photos are from two separate outings.  I did finally see an alligator at Wakodahatchee this morning, cruising from under the boardwalk.

Hope you enjoy the photos!
