It is so peaceful in the Everglades. Not only do you see the beauty of nature in all the wildlife, but there are scenes that remind us how blessed we are that people care enough to protect these lands and work toward keeping them protected for generations to come.
I get such a kick out of watching vultures instigate each other and others. They want to see how far they can get – even with an alligator! I also heard a sound from them recently which I had never heard before. Sounded like a dog’s low bark.
I saw a TV special about crows once. They are the smartest birds around. They can actually make and use tools for a purpose. Their abilities to communicate and survive are remarkable!
Saw these Willits and Terns on the beach in Florida, but they can be seen at the Jersey Shore as well. The Willits move around pretty quickly. I managed to get a couple of shots before they sped away down the beach. They can win speed walking competitions!
