A meme I’m trying out: A list of thirteen things, any topic, any style.
Thirteen Things I’ve Seen on Jekyll Island This Week:
2- Dozens of black- and yellow-crowned night herons!
and a green heron or two:
3- Skimmers! plus gulls
4- Sea Pansy!
5- An assortment of butterflies! (monarch, gulf fritillary, skippers, common buckeye, among others)
6- Forster’s terns and royal terns!
7- Snowy egrets chasing a willet who played them!
and one doing an interpretive dance:
8- White ibises!
9- Eastern rat snake!
10- Lot of sunsets!
11- Spiny orb weaver and golden silk orb weaver spiders!
12- Tri-coloured herons!
13- Woodstorks and roseate spoonbills!
I love all these things — the birds, insects, and other animals; the plants; the beach treasures; and the exploration and discovery of them — but the marsh and the ocean are the sights I most want to see every day.
And this guy.
