06/28/2011 - Alligator Bayou

Header image is of a red-winged blackbird berating me for being in its nesting territory.

1) Sunrise at the entrance to Alligator Bayou.

2) Much of the main channel of Alligator Bayou is grass land until it gets narrow and then the variety of plants increases.

3) Grass land attracts birds like this Bittern.

4) A red-winged blackbird advertising for a mate.

5) There were way to many flowers in upper Alligator to photograph and post here. 

6) The flowers ranged from big morning glories to tiny Loosestrife flowers with a streak of pink on the petals. I spent 2-3 hours in upper Alligator Bayou immersed in the moment, like a little kid in a candy store.

7) There is all sorts of life in the vegetation if you look long enough, like this tree frog.

8) I hesitated to post this photo but decided to share the intimate scene because it shows the tender side of nature.

9) A rather big chested fly hitched a ride on the kayak.

10) Not sure what this insect was depositing on the leaf.
