One of my favorite benefits of walking or biking is being able to watch the wildlife around you. I'll probably always think it's cool to see a Bald Eagle, a big Osprey or a Manatee. Sometimes, you also get to see some more exotic animals, as well. Here is a sample from the past few months.
A live Queen Conch. It was in a fairly muddy area so we can't really see it's best colors.
A Green Sea Turtle
An Octopus (notice him looking at me?)
...and of course, a Shark. Nurse Sharks have an interesting chocolate coloring.
These are only cell phone pics so the quality isn't the greatest but I think they are worth sharing. Now I need some shots of the Ospreys, Rays and other critters....
