Hawk Under the Bat Box – Orlando Wetlands Park – February 2016

“I have noticed that the people who are late are often so much jollier than the people who have to wait for them.” – Edward Verrall Lucas

Coreopsis lanceolata – Mullet Lake Park – February 2016

“I believe in the uncommon, the unusual and unlikely, even the miraculous.   I believe in nearly all things except impossibilities. That I can’t fathom. ” – Richelle E. Goodrich

Muscovy Duck – Mullet Lake Park – February 2016
Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the men of old; seek what they sought.
This drake was sporting his finest. Although considered an invasive species, they almost always cooperate for pictures. BTW they have nothing to do with Moscow – their a tropical bird.

Fern – Mullet Lake Park – February 2016

“Although our intellect always longs for clarity and certainty, our nature often finds uncertainty fascinating.” – Carl von Clausewitz

I’m trying to catalog the flora and fauna of Mullet Lake Park and came across this guy – is it a shoestring fern or a wild pine? I will have to wait until it flowers to tell for sure. In either case it is an epiphyte  living on this palm tree.
