We visited Glen Oaks Park, a wildlife refuge in Clearwater, Florida and found a number of birds and wildlife of interest.
This pond with water lilies and surrounded by tall grasses appeared to be a turtle haven where many could be seen sunning themselves on top of foliage, branches and even each other.
Cormorants and seagulls found the warmth of the sun gratifying as they lazed about on the wooden handrails of walkways by the water. A swamp hen scuttled about the grasses along the side of the pond for food.
A couple of blue herons were poking around in the water and weeds and the next thing I knew, this one had a frog hanging from his beak.
A black head slicing through the water climbed out on land to stretch out on the grass. The otter noticed me with my camera and sat up for a better look. Before long, it slid back into the water to continue diving for fish.
