My first trip to the nature world around here was fairly unspectacular. A few days ago I showed you pictures of dragonflies that I took, but nothing more exotic. That's the way it goes sometimes, gators are so finicky when it comes to humans with cameras.
So I'm afraid there won't be too many exciting things to show you on the 2nd part of the trip. That's when you walk out of the watery swamp areas and start on the solid ground part of the trip. Frankly the water areas are more exciting than the scrub brush. If you see anything at all it will most likely be a buzzard circling overhead, lips wet with anticipation. Maybe a stray turtle, but nothing neat like a snake or armadillo.
Not too far from the water's edge I did see this clinging to the side of a small tree. I don't have any idea what it is, but looks to be some sort of egg sac(s).
