Friday Creature

Another creature (besides all the birds I've been featuring lately) I saw when I was in Florida earlier this summer was this little family of manatees (look closely -- it's an adult surrounded by two juveniles). There's a little marina in an inlet not far from where I was staying that is popular with local manatees. I'd seen them there before, but this was the first time I'd been lucky enough to be standing on a bridge looking down into the water as they moved below me (which is about the only way of getting a decent look at these great mammals without an underwater camera). Emmie was with me, and she captured an even better shot of one of the manatees.

Sorry for the late post today. It's being a busy Friday. Have a great weekend and, as always, remember to visit the ark to see what's new!
