A Green Heron, Alligator, and Gorgeous Scenery in Dunnellon, FL

DSC_2691 - Version 2

A Green Heron in breeding plumage, was spotted perching on a low overhanging tree along the banks of a large freshwater pond in the Blue Run Park in Dunnellon, FL on April 17, 2015.  The pond is next to the Withlacoochie River and has several Alligators in it.

I had spotted a pair of River Otters in this same pond last year.  There is a bike trail on one side of the pond next to the river, and a looping trail around the pond.  It is a short level hike that is fun and scenic.  I have included a picture of the river with Cypress Tree “Knees”.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
