    I took a trip out to Florida last week...

    First we spent an afternoon on Marco Island near Fort Myers out looking for seashells and sand dollars. Lots of interesting wildlife was around.

    On another day, we stopped out at Myakka River State Park for some other wildlife viewing...we went there with the intent to see some alligators...

    However, there was no sign of them anywhere at the typical viewpoints when we first drove in, so we stopped for awhile at the waterfront of Myakka Lake. There we were privileged to witness a bald eagle swoop down to catch some breakfast. It actually landed on the shoreline for a moment with its catch and right as I was setting up to compose what could have been a great shot, it took off again. Bummer! So I went right into video mode and had to settle for some stills extracted from the shaky video from the zoom.

    After that thrill it was on to see what other wildlife was out and about...

    And then...finally, on our way out, the gators had come out.
