Sandhill Crane Family at Myakka River

The bike ride through Myakka River State Park was fun and it was a good thing I had the camera in the rack bag because every few minutes there was something to photograph.

I found this Sandhill Crane adolescent with its parents, cruising through the dandelions, not far from the road.

Alligator repost

I cropped the previous alligator photo to better see the its surface texture.  They really do look like something from another time.
