Daughter Chrissy home for a visit took some nice photos round about SW Florida. The portrait of a Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis) is my favorite.
Here's a Cooter Turtle basking in the sun along a small creek along the Myakka River near Sarasota. Cooters are confusing to ID, but I think this one is an Eastern River Cooter (Pseudemys concinna concinna).
I believe this to be a Common Baskettail Dragonfly (Epitheca cynesura), but will stand corrected for any expert advice!
Chrissy "shot" this fast moving little warbler in Myakka River State Park. I believe it's a Palm Warbler (Dendronica palmarum).
American Alligators (Alligator missippienensis) basking along the Myakka River, Sarasota, Florida.
It was wonderful to have Chrissy visit, and for us to get out and enjoy the natural world here in SW Florida.
