Kayaking the "Lil Amazon" near Leesburg, FL April 26, 2013

On Lil Amazon, the Fragrant and Yellow Water Lilies and Spatterdock abound. Kenny, who had a Lubber hitch hiking on his yak ;-) showed Mary the treats of this special place. They were able to see the Purple Gallinule, Moorhens and Coots. A Harrier flew over, they caught a glimpse of a Bald Eagle, Anhingas, Cormorants and a Red Shouldered Hawk having a snack. A few Gators and Turtles came out to say hello and as always, in the background, the Red-winged Blackbirds were singing along.

Mary shared these photos with us, these are from Emeralda Island Marsh and her Venetian Gardens excursion that same day. Thanks Mary, these are awesome shots!
