I took some pics of FL animals and stuff that I thought were cute!


I thought this little guy was so cute! He is called a sand flea I think? Anyways, he is kinda weird.




I saw an Osprey nest too! If you look close, you can see the little bald baby osprey poking his head up.




One of the dolphins that likes to hang out near the boats. His name is Mooch, LOL! I'm rather proud of this picture!



Cute little birds.




A wild tortoise! <3 Isn't he adorable?! He wasn't too happy with me LOL.



And a little seagull.

Aww that's why it's so pretty.

I live in South Florida where the beaches are usually crowded and there's garbage everywhere.

BUT right now I'm in Tallahassee until May (close to the panhandle) and haven't been to the beach yet. I really have to go check out the beaches and wild area before I go back. Yeah, I'm more of the nature/secluded/untouched areas. There are also so natural springs with underwater caves I want to see.

BTW you're good at taking pictures, I would NOT be able to take a nice picture of a small sand flea like that. LOL

Thanks everyone! :D


@Meggie: LOL, I guess that the people in the little retirement cities don't litter too much! The beaches were all pretty nice, except Siesta Key was pretty crowded and there was a lot of trash on the beach. Ew. We couldn't go to Venice beach though, cause there was sewage bacteria in the water or something.
Ooooh, underwater caves sound fun!

Haha, thanks so much Amanda! LOL I whine so much about living in MN, Canada must be even colder! :p


Aww, I thought he was pretty cute! They look weird when they walk, it was kinda funny. As cute as he was, though, I wouldn't touch him... We poked him with our toes until he found his way back the the water, where he promptly burried himself in the sand.

Great Pics Jess!!

The sand fleas make great fish bait, ...and in some parts of the caribbean, they bread them and fry them up. They taste a little like crab or shrimp, with a nice crunchiness to them. One of my faves, ...and another thing we don't eat much of in the States. hehe

Awesome photos of the birds too.
