There were tons of butterflies, including this common buckeye.
The Bogue Falaya river. I've heard something recently about some possible dredging, so that boaters can get all the way to Lake Pontchartrain again.
This was my first definite sighting of an osprey (with a fish.) There was also a handful of bluebirds flitting among the trees.
It was surreal the way this water fountain was running by itself (we stopped it, to preserve water.)
The slightest flash of a mystery bird, unfortunately the best shot of it I got (click for larger view.) If it looks even vaguely familiar to you, I'd appreciate any input you might have. It seemed to be slightly larger than a blue jay & it flew pretty quickly, following the river. (Update, 3/16/10; This is a belted kingfisher.)
