We saw lots of birds, why is it that birds hate to have their photo taken? I tried for hours and these are the best I could capture...as they hid, flew away, or just turned their heads and presented their butts to me...lol so this is what nature offed up for us to bring home, such as...
the retreating Blue Heron
The Elegant Egret
The FINALLY still greater yellowlegs
the mile high osprey....
the backlit sundried vulture
the quickly gliding by Woodstork
the intelligent iridescent crow
the well camo-ed poorly lit common moorhens-
this huge swarm of Northern Rough Wing Swallows eating the kamacazee mosquitos (you know that kind of mosquito that dive bombs into your eyes..what exactly are they trying to do?) -
Also saw and got terribly blurry fuzzy shots of the never landing belted kingfisher, the well hidden white & glossy ibis, & the I dont have my camera ready bald eagle, and the huge flock of ducks that spooked when I approached! (none shown here) A gaggle of geese, and some very well hidden sparrows, and other song birds!
...but we did see some other critters worth mentioning--
The get that camera outta my face or Ill eat you... american alligator
...and his buddy, the hurry up Im about to disappear underwater gator --
...and we wondered why there were so many air bubbles coming out of these canals...Finally we drove back to Beaufort to catch the sun's last rays and watch the moon come out -
We took a walk along the waterfront...watched the bridge over the Beaufort river opened to allow a barge to pass.
Got hungry for water-side dining...
watched the light turn to gold as the sun turned in....and so did we!!
The next day we got up and headed to Historic Charleston---
that will be later gator!!
