Lower Wekiva River from Katie's Landing

Deer

Had a relaxing paddle at the Lower Wekiva River, putting in at Katie's Landings. The plan was to kayak at another location but two things happened. Over slept and then the dreaded check engine light turned on. Given that last fact decided to stay close to home.

Red Shouldered Hawk

Put In / Take Out: Katie's Landing.


Little Blue Heron (Ibis in the background)

Not too much to say. Did paddle from Katie's to the high ground used as a camping site. There a couple arrived and asked me if I was camping. I told them no, that was only stretching my legs. They told me they were going to camp there last night. Warned them it was illegal and the man, with a hint of "am not believing you" on his voice asked me what made me think that was the case. I explained to them I have seen signs in the past and left it there. Let us go to the pics, first from the downstream leg...

  1. Love the gator and the deer..the variety of wildlife in Florida never ceases to amaze me..imagine what it was like before colonization..or even before over-development!

  2. Wow! As usual, your photos are stunning. I love the way somehow you manage to tell these animals and birds where to stand so that there's always a colorful leaf or other complimentary nature item in the shots. These are all trained animals and birds, right! :)
