Springtime Is Green Time

My Louisiana swamp tours are in the largest rookery of wading birds in North America. The Yellow Crowned Night Heron seen below was photographed in a grove of Bald Cypress on the northwest side of the lake.

In a matter of days her chicks should be hatching and we will see their little Rod Stewart haircuts popping up over the rim of the nest. Just like the nesting season, timing is everything when it comes to the Purple Irises as seen below.

Below is a woodpecker in flight, look closely....

Have you ever wondered why an alligator is always smiling?
