Critters Galore

Anhinga drying his wings beside the lake in Nalcrest, Florida

While we didn’t specifically look for wildlife during our time in Florida, we did come across some examples of the local fauna.  Here are a few of my non-wildlife-photographer results.  I don’t think I ever saw an armadillo in the wild before.  If I did I don’t remember it.  I have seen plenty of the others, however.
