Cedar Waxwings, Turtles, Koi, and a Cute Squirrel

I visited our area’s beautiful botanical park (where I spotted the owls) on March 29, 2015, and again, March 31, 2015.  I saw a few of the beautiful Cedar Waxwings high in two of the huge Pine Trees and also took pictures of a couple of the large fat Koi fish that are resident in the park pond.  The Cooter Turtles also live in that pond.

The final park critter I saw was an oh-so-cute little Grey Squirrel that scooted up to the shady Gazebo next to the Koi Pond, and snagged some of the fallen fish food on the floor (sold in a machine at the gazebo for a quarter).  That little squirrel was unafraid of people and calmly ate while four adults watched.   Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  By the way, I have just now returned to our Florida home and am glad to be back!
