A Nature Walk in The Village of Fenney, The Villages, FL

A trio of Cooter Turtles, a pair of Florida Mottled Ducks, a Monarch Butterfly, a Fence Lizard, a Carolina Wren and a couple of Great Egrets (not shown here due to blurry rainy pictures) were all spotted on Sunday, April 15, 2018 in the afternoon at the lovely Fenney Springs Nature Trail and Spanish Moss Park in The Village of Fenney in The Villages, FL.

The Fenney area is among the most recently developed areas of The Villages, and it has an especially  beautiful regional park!  The springs are a natural area with added man-made ponds among the fields and Live Oaks.  The park has a lovely accessible boardwalk nature trail.  There also are a few well-placed picnic tables in the grassy area slightly away from the boardwalk and close to the rear pond.  There seemed to be a good amount of parking available for cars and carts, too.  We had to cut our quick visit short due to thunderstorms.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
