Loxahatchee

Visited Loxahatchee NWR yesterday to see how the Snail Kites are doing. We saw several on our way to the park, perched on power lines and feasting on apple snails caught from irrigation ditches. Here's one wearing some jewelry:



Didn't see any kites inside of the park. It was a slow day for wildlife at the refuge in general. The best subjects for photography were insects.











It was less oppressively hot than usual yesterday, and this morning the air was almost pleasant. I wouldn't go so far as to say that it was "cool" but there was a noticeable difference. It makes a welcome change from 100% humidity.

I've got some travel in a few weeks time, nowhere exotic, just within Florida. Should be fun. I drive a lot less now than I used to so the idea of a "road trip" is exciting. After that, November should be more settled, so hopefully more time to devote to picture taking.
