Florida: not just amusement parks

As the title indicates, there's (much) more to see in Florida than the various amusement parks. Besides the beaches, there's the wildlife, which is basically what this post is about.

Although there's a raptor in the picture of the confluence of Blue Spring and the St. John's River above, the point of including it is to show the pontoon boat on which I took an excursion...and several pictures.

Here's an anhinga drying its wings next to a turtle.

Manatees in Blue Spring.

Had to have a shot of a 'gator.

A snowy egret in flight.

Now back to the "grind"...

Hey Camo,

I lived in Florida for awhile. We had egrets and gators regularly visit the drainage ditches around our little subdivision. Not too many manatees though.

(:D) Best regards...

Since I have family in Florida, I've spent quite a bit of time there.

As for the manatees, according to the official count at Blue Spring State Park there were 147 of them in residence on the day that I visited...
