Jordan Lake: The autumn air warmed enough this morning for me to share a moment with a delightful critter. Here in the southern US we call this lizard a chameleon because it changes colors depending on the surface it is upon. However, it is not a true chameleon (which lives in parts of Africa and other Old World sites) which can change more than between green and brown. Properly, our color changer is known as a green anole. I hope you enjoy its ramble.
Jordan Lake: Great blue herons enjoy the occasional meal of American eel. I wondered if this was the fledgling’s first taste of eel. #AmericanEel #Eel #GreatBlueHeron
The fledgling great blue heron is alert and watching for fish. The turtle is watching for food too. I sometimes think that the turtles wait for the herons to drop tidbits and they can share a meal.
2 year-old bald eagles will do just about anything to get a meal …
especially if it means little work on their part.
I watched the gull catch the fish and suddenly drop it.
The young eagle swooped in,
snagged the fish from right at the lake’s surface
and headed for shore where he consumed the gull’s catch.
