Enjoying the birds and the bees

Left Brain found this lovely refuge area while out biking and couldn't wait to share it with me.  There is a parking lot and a short walk over the bridge brings you to the viewing platform.

It felt refreshing to feel the breeze on my face and the smell of the marshland while I watched the egrets on the far side of the water.

This appears to be an egret rookery based on the numbers of them, many with nests in the trees.

I used to purchase these for my pond back "home" when we still had the house.  There had to be thousands of them here.

The flowers were sweet as I walked back to the car and I couldn't pass up snapping a shot of this spiderwort.

Then I started watching the bees going from flower to flower.

I almost missed this little buy hanging on the bolt of the guardrail.

He allowed me to get pretty up close and personal.

There's nothing like a dose of nature to make me smile.

Long Live the Queen of Birds and Bees


  1. I used to catch anoles, when I was a kid in Texas. They bite, and their tales fall off if caught by them (the tails grow back, though).
    These are awesome captures. Great share, Left Brain & Queen.

  2. What great photos! Especially the ones of that little green critter. Wonderful close ups. Have a super day. Hugs, Edna B.
