the azaleas are blooming.
but the butterflies and bees are not braving the cooler weather yet.
it's still dropping to the 30's or low 40's (F) at night.
i have come to the conclusion that our florida critters are spoiled.
no snakes. no frogs. hardly any birds. no bugs.
they're all snugged away in their hidey-holes waiting for the warmer temps.
hmmmmm. maybe not spoiled...but smart?!!
the squirrels don't mind the cold!
one sunny afternoon this past week i did spot a brave lizard
hanging from a window sill...soaking up the sun.
(cool shadow too!)
last weekend we did a camping over-nighter at O'Leno State Park.
about an hour drive. just one night. to get away.
walked the trails along the Santa Fe river.
again...no deer. no 'gators. no rabbits. no hawks.
BUT THERE WERE TURTLES!!
(see the flying baby turtle?!!)
look close. the back end of the shell on turtle to the right is all shredded! :( boat prop? gator?
well. that's it for now.
i couldn't get a picture of the FULL moon last night. very cloudy.
still cloudy this morn.
the moon for all us "Leo's".
yep, the MOON and JUPITER are in LEO right now!!
so, no full moon. but here's the last clear sky moon shot i could get, on jan. 27th.
stay cool & be safe.
