Cool, windy, but sunny day at Ding!

Taking photos midday is difficult due to the harsh lighting.  Today was no exception, but when there is a really low tide at Ding, we head over anyway!  I had to delete most of the photos, but here are a few to share.

This big gator had quite a crowd watching him sleep.  Sometimes, you just need to find a warm place in the sun and sink your feet in the mud, ya know?

I always love to come across a Roseate Spoonbill

I think this is the down of a thistle?!!  The bee liked whatever it is!

My hawk buddy was back in the tree across the street from our house!!
