Went to DeLeon Springs State Park this past week for some field training.
Devil's walking stick
5-lined skink. They lose their stripes with age.
At home, I still have a flock of female painted buntings. The males left last week, but I did see one straggler this morning. I took this picture on Sunday last week. I had a feeling that they were planning to leave soon because the males were singing and behaving very aggressively.
Still lots of other bird action in the yard. Had a Northern Parula stop by, and there are plenty of cardinals and blue jays. Have not seen any hummingbirds for about a week so I guess they are gone until the fall.
A pair of brown thrashers has been hanging around
