Maybe vultures don’t like to get their wings wet.

I’ve mentioned before that the Great Blue Herons here let you get close to them, closer than we can get to them in Ohio. Many egrets, like these two, let you get close, also. People like to fish on this part of the South Lido Park beach, and the egrets like to hang around to see if they can beat the people to the catch . . . What I really love is the feet.

Selby Gardens sits on Sarasota Bay, where this Little Blue Heron preened and preened and preened before garden visitors.

Another sign that fall is approaching is the pretend migration of this area’s Canada geese. Their raucous honking and v-shaped flight patterns are all for show (or something). They never leave but spend the winters here.

Usually, when the ibises come to town, I only see them from a moving car and without my camera. Saturday they were walking around right in front of me as I made my way to farmers market, camera around my neck. What a treat. I was able to get pretty close to them; they only scattered when a loud truck approached.

This Wednesday, walking through the fog on my way to the river, I spotted the gleaners of the winter-wheat fields that I photographed earlier this summer. (See here and here and here and here and here.) Please click on this photo to see it at a reasonable size.
