Lower Suwannee Refuge
(Above: Barnett Creek)
I posted about our ride through the Lower Suwannee NWR about a week ago, but the main focus of that post was the little alligator by the roadside.
Here are some pictures, taken on the same day, that did not make it into that post. I don't have a lot of time this morning, so I'll let the pictures do the talking ... mostly.
The young water moccasin was basking on the gravel road. The focus is a little soft ... it was late in the day and I didn't want to use the flash. Of course my hand may have been trembling some. I was using the quiet refuge roads as a place for Jr. to practice his driving skills ... in my JEEP.
Above, a gar is lurking in the shallows, that minnow on the gar's port side is in a very dangerous place.
Colorful natives going about their daily routine. This seemed to be some sort of staring at water ritual ...
