Taking in the View

Sitting on the back lanai is always a pleasure whether it's mornings with coffee or early evening.  Below are a few pictures that I took over the past week.

A little hard to see - but this alegator is about 5 foot long and was sunning itself on the berm....

 These are a little further away - so I'm not exactly which birds  these are.  We often see White Ibis, Snowy Egrets or Blue Heron... These are definitely of the smaller category. 

Sand Hill Cranes are heard just before 8:00 am each morning.   Often doing there little dance.......... But no dancing today.

This is definitely a white Ibis.   I wasn't sure until I saw him take flight.  They have black on the tips of their wings that you can only see when they fly. 

And here the Sand Hill Cranes are in control which caused the Ibis to take flight.

A little later in the morning the Sand Hill Cranes wander just outside the fence on the lanai. 
And tomorrow morning, there will be no coffee on the lanai.  I am scheduled for surgery and must be at the hospital by 6:30 am.
