Mocking Bird

I got this just as the low early morning sunlight was hitting the trees.

Mottled

A Mottled Duck.  Sometimes jokingly called a Muddled Duck because they interbreed so often with Mallards.  They are mostly in Florida and right along the Gulf Coast.

Tricolored Heron

I found this guy looking for fish at a place where the early morning light comes from the sunlight reflecting off of a large area of foliage above it.  The result is a brilliant colored background that makes great photos but is difficult to manage in Lightroom.

The fish must be small because I watched this bird catch quite a few in just the few minutes I was standing there.

Better Days

An early morning walk took me past a farm that had this boat stored next to the barn. It looks like one of those “someday” projects.
