This Green Heron was spotted on Sunday afternoon in the flooded marshland off of FL 441 at the overlook at Paynes Prairie State Park. We have had a lot of rain in the last week and it also rained earlier on Sunday. I do not recall ever seeing the marshland looking like a lake before! I also spotted a Great Egret and a male Red-winged Blackbird during our very brief visit to the overlook area. I don’t know the name of the aquatic flower I photographed but it sure was a beautiful blossom! Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo. Enjoy!
