Had a great short hike at the Circle B Bar Reserve near Lakeland today with Nick. He was, of course, hoping to see an alligator. We didn't but we did see plenty of other creatures including a variety of birds, a squirrel, and some playful otters which were too difficult to photograph.
Well hello, Mr. Squirrel!
Nick searches in the marsh for alligators.
Lots of birds in the trees and in the sky.
A showoff near the lakeshore.
Finally Nick got his gator. Too bad it was fake.
