A different Foothill Drive

This is one of the most beautiful drives during October.

I made this drive several times over a 10 day period, both when overcast and sunny, I was always delighted with the changes each time.

Birds of a feather?

A great egret at Fort Clinch

Little blue heron stationed under the above egret

Surveying his kingdom, outside my fifthwheel. (Coopers Hawk)

A pair of great egrets on Tamiami Trail

The most fascinating bird, the American Darter, aka anhinga, when I first saw this, I thought it was a snake in the water until it climbed out totally wet and dried off the wings to fly.

Check out this four in one photo. I'm not sure what the bottom bird is, American darter on the top, great blue heron in the second position, snowy egret in the third center position.

Looking for dinner?

Stayed for 3 weeks in this neat state, taking my time to watch birds from Fort Clinch to Tamiami Trail.

Local people brag about the moonshine

Do you think the mountains in the background are rather smoky?

Check out these photos, can you guess where I was? I have seen so many colors in the mountains as I move from north to south and warmer weather.
