Went to check out the marsh pond and the swamp this morning. We received a report yesterday that some spoonbills had arrived and sure enough, at the far back edge of the pond we saw 8 fresh spoonbills cavorting about in all their pink glory.
Well, since they were way too far off to be successfully photographed, this lone alligator hanging out in the marsh muck had to do for today.
It did not look like an extremely comfortable area in which to relax, but what do I know? Our gator friend might have loved it!
A perfect example of nature ‘mucking things up,’ and a good reminder of why it’s always useful to have a pair of muck boots around.
Can’t wait to see the spoonbills!
