Is this an immature little blue heron? We didn't see any adults. It was about 2/3 the size of nearbye adult great egrets.

When we were at this little rookery in march there were no cattle egrets at all. Now the place is crawling with them. They were only outnumbered by the ibis.

Description

These Yellow-banded millipedes were everywhere. I looked them up and evidently they are a relatively recently introduced carribean species that has thrived in south Florida. Interestingly, they produce secretions that are mildly repelant to insects.

Description

So cool! I had never seen a bobcat in the wild. This guy was in the middle of a developed park area. Our car was no more than 10 meters away. He was nervous but showed no intention of retreating.

Its been very windy and rainy for the past two days but we decided to drive down anyway. Glad we did because the weather broke for a couple hours just as we got there. We practically had the place to ourselves. I can't imagine we would have seen this guy if the place was as crowded as usual.
