That quote is a reminder to me!!
It’s dragonfly season in Central Florida – they are beautiful creatures. However, I feel like the a cartoon character with a butterfly net as I chase the dragon flies around the path with my camera.

“I do not understand how a man can live without some small place of enchantment” – Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
Watched a video last night “In Marjorie’s Wake” from PBS by Equinox Documentaries. Highly recommended to all. It is about 2 women who recreate a trip that Marjorie Rawlings and a friend took over 75 years ago along the St John’s River. She was an author who preserves the memories of old Florida in her fiction. Cross Creek and the Yearling are two of her most famous.
This video goes through my “place of enchantment” not so small but magical.
“If you don’t like the road you are walking on, start paving another one.” Dolly Parton
The sand hill cranes were traveling. I later saw them walking down the middle of the road – outside the park about a mile or two from where I first spotted them. Sand hill cranes concern me – they do not seem to have an awareness of cars. I’ve encountered them on roads several times, seemingly unconcerned with the cars.

Squirrels are not usually a target of my photography, but this guy begged to have his picture taken.
These two birds are so different that it is difficult to think they are the same species. As a side note I spend far to much time wondering about why males and females of different species are so different and how this supports survival.

The alligators were very active Sunday morning. A count was done recently and the determined there are 1700+ alligators in the park. That works out to be a little over 1 per acre. Yikes!

I think I may try for wild flower Tuesdays. The name would work better on Wednesday – So perhaps I’ll move my bird day to Tuesday. Hmmm decisions. |:>)
