Here are some of the other critters I saw during my short vacation trip to St. Augustine, Florida a week ago.  The Great Blue Heron was spotted at the RV park we stayed at.  The Mallard flock and Great Cormorant were also RV park residents.

I spotted the Anhinga and the Common Cooter and Florida Soft Shell Turtle at a large freshwater pond behind the police station in St. Augustine Beach.  I briefly saw the shell of that Soft Shell Turtle and can say that it was a very large turtle.  That big pond was chock-full of turtles.  I think I saw at least ten.  I took these pictures on August 20, 2014 and again on August 21, 2014.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
