Another bike ride to St. Andrews State Park this morning and I went photo-happy with the camera. I couldn't help it, too many things to document. My camera had 77 pictures from my ride. It was my first time riding there in the morning. I don't know if it was because it was morning or luck, but I had a lot more wildlife encounters than normal. And pretty close at times.

I found where many herons and egrets roost in the mornings, in a marsh in the center of the park. There were a couple dozen of them out there.
And got really close to me, until I moved too much trying to get a better shot and he flew off.
|You looking at me?|
|Perfect viewing distance|
My first alligator sighting! Hadn't seen one since we moved here last fall. We saw a few on our FL vacation in 2011 at Wakulla Springs State Park, but not since we moved here.
