March 26: Windy Point Park Revisited

I love this place. It’s minutes from home, has a huge lake popular with the fishermen, a pleasant walking path, an observation platform overlooking a large pond, and a small marsh area the wading birds and frogs love. I visit regularly.

An early morning shot of the lake. Those sunbeams are so cool!

Blue-gray gnatcatcher. First time I’ve seen this tiny bird. It was darting in and out of trees along the walking trail. The white circle around its eye makes it easy to identify. It migrates through Florida. I sat on my butt on the path and simply waited until it landed. I had to be quick, because it was in one place no more than one or two seconds at a time.

I mentioned the observation deck. Here it is on a cloudy morning. 

I turned 180 degrees and skies were brighter.  I took this picture from the observation deck, then added the eagle in post. The bird is the only thing that wasn’t there when I was. 🙂

This is a full-sized crop of that photo. That eagle worked perfectly, don’t you think? Looks like it belongs there.

Turning 90 degrees on the platform offered the following view. I love that forked tree. It draws my eye every time I’m there.

If you follow the path to the end, you pass a pasture that adjoins the park. In it are horses. I loved the lighting in this one.

See you next time.
