Homosassa Springs Favorites - Part 1

Out of 495 photos taken the other day at Homosassa Springs, I ended up with quite a few favorites.  So, rather than bore y'all with a long photo post, I'm going to break it down into several posts.

I have a few more flamingo shots that I liked...


You can tell by the ringlets in the water in the above photo that it was sprinkling a bit.






I spent a lot of time around the flamingos.  They were quite entertaining and so pretty.

While we were visiting the flamingos, a terrible thunder and lightning storm came in.  We sat under a pavilion and waited it out.  It finally let up enough for us to walk back to the entrance where we bought some long-sleeved shirts to keep the chill off and grabbed a bite to eat.  No sooner did we finish eating, the rain stopped and we had the rest of the afternoon to enjoy this lovely park.

I also spent some time watching the colorful Wood Ducks.  As y'all know, I like ducks!



The Great Blue Heron does not look too happy about his soggy, ruffled feathers!




I believe these turtles enjoyed having their picture taken...


... they were quite the posers!


I'll end today's post with some hippo shots...

Peek-a-boo!






That's it for now.

Till next time,

I love that your camera caught the rain drops in the water! Don't think my little point and shoot would. Fun pics:@)
