Great Blue Heron

Beautiful birds, but they always look strange in a tree. This guy was was watching us, as we came back from an aborted off shore trip.

Fall in the Florida Panhandle

We had our first major cool front this weekend coupled with "big" negative tides. 20-30 kt.  north winds with tides averaging 1 foot lower than normal equals more trouble than it's worth to fish, so I took a ride through Tate"s Hell State Forest and Apalachicola National Forest.

Who says we don't have seasons?
An interesting clover...not sure what it is.
The  deer tongue or wild vanilla still had some good color.

The soft greeneyes were in scattered clumps and still in good color. Overall there are still a number of wildflowers in bloom. I'll post some more later in the week. I'm fishing in the morning and it's my bed time.
