On our way into the park I was able to stop right along side this deer. I didn't dare get out of the car, however, so this was taken through my dusty windshield.
2 snowy egrets.
Family of common moorhens.
A hump in the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, the world's longest bridge (and the white dot of an egret in the distance.)
Mystery marsh flower (any help with an ID would be appreciated.)
Guttiation on a grape leaf. Thanks to Victor Engel for the info.
Mystery flowering plant in the marsh (IDs always welcome.)
Way off in the distance, a great blue heron.
A teensy, tiny American tree frog (our state amphibian.)
A juvenile moorhen (nowhere near the family group and much older than those chicks.)
Part of the boardwalk through the marsh.
Despite having arrived shortly after sunrise, it was far too hot and muggy to stay very long. Cooler weather is certainly on the way, however. Summer's humidity is dropping and our nightly lows are dipping into the 60s. I just learned about another new park that's opened in our area, so I look forward to getting out much more in the near future!
