Another Hike at Fontainebleau

The Flatwoods were still flooded out yesterday, so we went back to Fontainebleau State Park, where the new boardwalk over the marsh was finally completed...


The Causeway Bridge is barely visible (& then only when enlarged,) way in the distance on the right half of this photo.

3 coots and an egret. There were many coots in the area & they were all kicking up quite a racket.

Red bellied woodpeckers are very common here, so I was delighted to see this red headed woodpecker for a change.

We watched this egret fishing for a while.

One group of the dozens of robins that were in the area.

Liked the stunning sky shot with the Causeway Bridge - didn't realize it was longest in the world.

Charles Gramlich said...

Loved the flying egret. A great park.

Jacob said...

The light and reflection in the bridge shot are perfect!

Demon Hunter said...

Love the pictures! Looks like a really cool place. :*)

Shauna Roberts said...

The light in the picture of the bridge is so cool.

I love egrets and was glad you got such a nice shot of one. Aren't they elegant birds? I was pleased to discover that we have them here in California, despite being in the desert.

Julie; Yes, the Causeway Bridge is quite a structure. Pretty neat, the 1st time you cross it. Pretty boring past that, unfortunately. Some nice views of the moon over New Orleans at times, although stopping points are few & far between. Often times pelicans will soar alongside on the thermals created by the bridge. That's kind of cool.

Charles; It was a great day, all around. The new boardwalk is great.

Jacob; Thank you. :)

DH; Thanks. Yes, it IS a pretty cool place. Large & historical, too. Lots to see & do. Slowly but surely coming back from the ravages of Hurricane Katrina.

Shauna; Thank you. Yes, I absolutely love egrets (& all of those big, wading birds, really.) Very stately.

What a lovely walk.

Reminds me of Northern Ontario in the spring.
No egrets, though some get lost and end up here after a hurricane.

But lovely blue herons!

Lana Gramlich said...

Ivan; I love blue herons, too. We had a HUGE one in our back yard around this time last year. Ironically a friend was visiting from Canada at the time!

Miladysa said...

Beautiful photographs!

Your Robins and soooo much bigger than our Robins ;]

Michelle's Spell said...

So many beautiful pictures -- Lana, you almost are making me like nature which is scary!!!! Ha! Seriously, truly gorgeous shots.

mon@rch said...

These are all such amazing photos! They look almost 3 day and I can jump in and join the birds!

Travis said...

That first photo is stunning.

Chris said...

Terrific photos! I love the way you cropped the coot & egret picture, nice! Looks like a wonderful day you had for an afternoon out.
:)

Lana Gramlich said...

Miladysa; Leaving for work this morning there were about 60 robins in my yard. I'll miss them when they head back north.

Michelle; Thanks. :)

Mon@rch; Wouldn't jumping in & joining them be cool? Even just for a little while...

Travis; So far it seems we've had partly cloudy skies every time we go here, so we're always assured of magnificent views.

Chris; The weather's been lovely. High 70s (& no sn*w!)

Erik Donald France said...

Amazing shots. There's something haunting there, especially the causeway bridge in the distance . . .

Lana Gramlich said...

Erik; It was so deliciously quiet, with only the slightest sound coming off the distant bridge...

Ello said...

Lana I just love your photos. I've got a beautiful red cardinal that comes visiting every once in awhile. I'm always amazed when I see him. Nature is incredible.

Lana Gramlich said...

Ello; You need to stop by "Charles & Lana's Cardinal Emporium." We had 8 males & 2 females out there this morning. I'm looking forward to the impending chicks & am uber-glad I have my digital camera this time around (with movie capability.)
Nature rocks. (Pardon the pun.)

Marvin said...

Fantastic photos, Lana. Sounds if you and Charles had a great day trip.

Lana Gramlich said...

Marvin; Thanks. We do enjoy our weekend hikes. :)

Thanks for taking me back home. I was on that original boardwalk friday b4 Katrina saying goodbye! I know those ponds and birds and skies oh too well. spent many hours with chestwaders and bino's in those swamps. I miss home so much, but theres nothing left there for me now. if i can find them i will send pics of 3 deer standing on that boardwalk one morning while walking with my sons. Sooo beautiful!
thanks again- great work
