There are a lot of people who take up birdwatching as a hobby, but do you know anyone who is a lizard watcher? Why not. What's wrong with lizards. I think they are fascinating. Unfortunately, they are often times skittish so it is hard to get a good profile photo of a lizard. I suppose when you appear to be a tasty meal to an owl or a night heron its good to be skittish or your species would be doomed.
The Amelia Island Plantation might be a bit tourist, a bit snooty and definitely overpriced, but I must say that the grounds are beautiful. Lots of flowers: azaleas, dogwoods, lilys, magnolia, crape myrtle. All welcome to weary midwestern eyes that have seen nothing but snowscapes over the previous four months.
I'm a big fan of wading birds and the great blue heron is among my favorites. Watching a heron in flight is amazing. The great blue stands four feet tall and its wingspan can be over six feet. When I watch a great blue heron in flight I often think about teradactyls and what they must have looked like in flight eons ago.
