Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife


A Common Cormorant, several Cooter Turtles, a Little Blue Heron, many Cattle Egrets, Cattle, and the Good Year Blimp were all spotted on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 at the Northwest Marion County horse farm/cattle pasture pond that I often go to for wildlife observation.  I take my pictures from the roadway so I am especially glad to have the long zoom lens.

That blimp was the big surprise of the afternoon, along with the gorgeous Little Blue Heron!  Please click on the thumbnail images to see the slightly larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. I took that picture of the Goodyear blimp from inside my car as the blimp was moving behind trees and I did not have the best view of the blimp. Sorry it is a pretty blurry picture.

  2. Good Morning, great shots of the Cattle and egrets.. And I love the turtles.. The Little Blue Heron is one of my favorite herons.. Have a happy Friday and weekend ahead!

  3. It’s pretty cool how the cattle tolerate all of those birds, and the birds seem to understand that they are safe. That one turtle, at first glance, looks like it trying to fly.

  4. the heron is gorgeous! 🙂
