We’ve had a group of Great Egret’s starting to roost around the pond and sometimes they come to hang out in our trees down by the water. Of course now this makes it difficult for me to photograph without scaring them off, which is what happened last night. I managed to get a few half-decent shots of them flying around.
I spotted this Argiope spider hanging out in the overgrown vegetation along the pond and rethought my plans of cleaning out the vegetation along the shoreline. I was planning on trying to remove some alligator weed and few other overgrown plants to clear up the edge a little so that some of the plants we’ve planted could get a chance. Royal ferns, spider lilies and a few others are being choked out by the aggressive vegetation.
Maybe I’ll try again tonight for better bird shots, it was overcast last night from a few stray t-storms in the afternoon.
