I never get tired of taking photos of turtles.

Busy bird

This mockingbird was gathering material for a nest and also giving me the eye! I took this photo awhile back when this tree was still bare and had no leaves.

Baby ducks resting in a shady spot near the edge of Lake Ella. Their mama was not too far away.

Lake Ella is a popular place to walk because the scenery is so beautiful and there is always something interesting going on. It's also nice to be reminded how far you are walking as you go along.

You may have to enlarge this photo to see what is lurking in the water, just left of center in the picture. A little hint: it's well camouflaged and only its eyes and part of its head are visible. I took this picture at Wakulla Springs State Park just south of Tallahassee.

Welcome to the jungle

I spent the weekend visiting my daughter and grandkids in Orlando and on Saturday I attended my granddaughter's majorette competition which was held in the gym of a local high school. This huge lion was looking down at us from the wall. The words "Welcome to the jungle" were painted around him, but I was unable to get the whole thing in my picture from my seat and the place was packed with girls (and a couple of boys) twirling their batons, so I stayed put. You may have guessed by now that the school's mascot is the lion.

Oil power

Another funny picture I took while I was walking through a parking lot the other day. I'm not sure being powered by vegetable oil would be cheaper than gas!

In case you were wondering about that license plate, to qualify for an antique plate in Florida, the vehicle must have been made after 1945 AND be at least 30 years old. It must also have an engine that is at least 30 years old. I blocked out the numbers on the plate for privacy reasons.

I was sitting at a red light the other day behind this motorcycle and that helmet was just begging me to take its picture, so I did. I couldn't resist when I saw the fake braids.

Chain of Parks

I took these pictures late in the day after walking around the Art Festival last weekend and it was starting to get a bit cloudy. The Chain of Parks sits between the east and west lanes of Park Avenue and runs through the heart of downtown Tallahassee. It was established in the late 19th century and planted by the Tallahassee Improvement Association (TIA). Ponce de Leon Park was the first to be established, followed by Lewis Park, Cherokee Park, E. Peck Greene Park, McCarty Park, Bloxham Park, and Genevieve Randolph Park (which was named by the woman who spearheaded the work of the TIA). I can't remember which park that is in the above picture, but it gives an idea of what they all look like. The Art Festival was taking place in the parks at the other end of the street, which is why this one looks a little deserted.

Art Festival

A couple of pictures from the Annual LeMoyne Chain of Parks Art Festival held downtown this past weekend. I didn't buy anything, but it was fun walking around looking at all of the beautiful displays.
