Saturday's Critters #171

Saturday's Critters #171

Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.

I accidentally deleted the first group of links this morning. Sorry, I did not remember all bloggers that have already linked. 

I am sharing some birds and critters from the Circle B Reserve. Here is a pretty shot of the Great Blue Heron.


A juvenile Little Blue Heron


The White Peacock Butterfly.


Gator's face is covered with duck weed.



A Green Heron is one of the common herons at the Circle B, sometimes we saw as many as 4-5 Green Herons during our walk.




A family of raccoons walking down the trail.


My favorite Black-bellied Whistling Ducks.


A turtle line up.



As always thanks for the visits and the nice comments. I also thank everyone who is linking up and sharing their critters.. Happy Saturday, have a great weekend!

  1. Interesting series of photos as always. I especially like the White Peacock Butterfly. Such unusual colours and patterns (at least compared to what I usually see here)

  12. Hi Eileen, sorry to say that the first of my links is wrong. It goes to my art blog. the system auto-filled it :( I think there is an option you can ad to the linkup where we can delete our own links?

    Love the butterfly, unusual to me, and the Racoon family looks cool. :)

  24. Nice shot with the raccoons. I've been to circle B several times and not seen one. Of course I've had a family of sand hills walk right by me, close enough to reach out and touch them, so I'm not complaining.

  44. I LOVE all these amazing critters! What a cool post. I WISH I could see a raccoon, or coyote or fox or something out here....we see the deer regularly, but not always in our yard. I'm dying to see some variety! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  45. The gator looks like he's trying some new kind of facial treatment (and it isn't really helping ;>).... Still loving your Florida pictures of course. Hope you are having fairly decent weather now that you are home -- to ease the transition. Our resort/park is emptying out pretty quickly.

  73. Hi ...had some time this morning came to visit some of the links but i guess the whole linkup disappeared.....but it is a good reminder to thank you again for all the work you do and the time and money you spend keeping this sharing party going. I think we kind of tend to take all of what our hosts do for granted. And I realize it isn't that simple! Thank you for putting up with all the hassles so we can share!
