This week in Ft. Myers

24inchTrout I took a vacation day on Tuesday and went fishing with a friend from church. Thanks for a great time Bob!

Caloosahatchee Creeks Preserve East

String Lily
String Lily (Crinum americanum)

This preserve is within walking  distance of where we live. Preserve web page. For almost 2 years now I have been a volunteer there 1 or 2 hours a month doing bird counts.

It is getting hot down here and our winter birds are gone but Saturday in the preserve there was a nice collection of herons, egrets and wildflowers.

Saltmarsh Morning Glory (Ipomea sagittata)

Birds were too far away for my old point and shoot but some of the flowers were String Lily (Crinum americanum), Saltmarsh Morning Glory (Ipomea sagittata), and Virgina Saltmarsh Mallow (Kosteletzkya pentacarpos).
