Reflections from Circle B Bar Reserve

I visited Circle B at sunrise Tuesday morning.  There wasn't much going on and most of the pelicans, spoonbills and storks were on the wrong side of the trail for the morning sunlight.  With little wind I did find several nice reflection shots to share with you.  Remember to "click" any picture to enlarge.

There are still some Black-bellied Whistling Ducks around the marsh.  This pair never moved while I was there.

I've seen more Stilts this year than in years past.  I still have not been able to get one in flight but will keep trying.

Black-crowned Night-heron

This Great Blue Heron stood motionless for a long time.  This picture will be my Picture of the Week

As always thanks for following my little blog and stop by my  website sometime.

Circle B Bar Reserve, Lakeland, FL

We visited Circle B at sunrise this morning to try to avoid the heat (94 here today).  We found a number of spoonbills still in the area but only a few remaining white pelicans.  Wood storks were everywhere but I've given up on trying to make one of them look attractive in a picture.  We did have a nice fly-by from one of the adult eagles and managed to capture several photos of him.  So here are some of todays best.
