Burrowing Owls at Cape Coral - May 26, 2017

Cape Coral, the Burrowing Owl capital of the world, is a place I have been meaning to go for years, and it was just how I imagined it!  Owls were everywhere, and so adorable!












Brooker Creek Headwaters - May 20, 2017

Went on a Sierra Club Meet-Up walk today, and got to see a nice park I have never been to before.  Pictured below are Swallow-tailed Kite, Spicebush Swallowtail on Buttonbush, Robberfly, and Halloween Pennant Dragonfly.


Lettuce Lake Park - May 16, 2017

Lettuce Lake Park is one of the best places around to find the Prothonotary Warbler.  Sometimes I get lucky and get a few photos too!  This is actually my first sighting of one this year.
