2009-10 Winter Tana Tour, Nature's Gifts

Nature abounds, we only have to look.  A 12 zoom lens on the digital camera doesn't hurt either!

early bloomers, ground huggers, name unknown.

Above, Osprey nest, Gulf State Park.  I had photos of Osprey nests when we first arrived here in Gulf Shores.  In fact, this is one of the same.  The second one, sadly, was blown down in a bad wind storm a few weeks back.  Man was studying this nest with binoculars, and he swears he saw a little head pop up near the right side of the nest.  I can't say for sure, is that one??   I have seen an adult land and sit on the nest, course, by the time I got the camera out and turned on - - - - -

Ohhhh, I dream of a 20 zoom camera  - - - and I have it all picked out!

Oooh. That reminds me that we saw a couple of sandhill cranes near Sparta a week or so ago. Saw one take off. It was something to see. We weren't more than 100 feet from the one in the pond.

Love the egret photo! I didn't get any good pics during our too short week in Florida but I loved seeing all the waders. The little flowers are wild strawberries. I have a huge patch here in what passes for lawn.
