Cedar Waxwings, Turtles, Koi, and a Cute Squirrel

DSC_2368

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!

Most of these photographs were taken in the past week in my yard and along my street here in Florida.  The picture of the Koi was taken at our local privately operated park.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

 

P.S.  My thoughts and prayers to the town of West, Texas.  It sure has been a terrible week here in the United States of America.  Please consider donating to the American Red Cross or the Salvation Army for disaster relief (especially for the tiny town of West where many homes have been blown down by the explosion in that fertilizer factory plant).  Many thanks!
