In May we took a trip to Edisto Island, SC, and I’m just now getting around to sharing some of my wildlife photos with you from that trip. I have so many, I will be dividing them into two posts. I don’t have a long lens, so some of my photos are not very good, but you can see the fun we had viewing these amazing creatures!
We saw several pairs of horseshoe crabs mating.
This one had lots of barnacles on it.
We adored these tiny fiddler crabs with their one big arm. I spent a long time hunched over waiting for this little fellow to pop out of his hole!
I love the sea birds, but I don’t know all their names.
What ever kind of bird that is, it’s hunting the fiddler crabs.
It was always exciting to see the dolphins pop up out of the water!
There was also a pretty exciting lagoon right outside our condo.
This guy would just glide back and forth across that lagoon looking so cool and calm. He owned the place.
There were hundreds of turtles in the lagoon.
I almost stepped on this beautiful, glass lizard. Nope, it’s not a snake! We saw two while we were there.
I couldn’t get enough of the baby egret nests. There were three or four nests. We also saw green heron babies almost ready to fledge their nests.
We took the seven-year-old’s microscope, and on the last day I pulled it out! We looked at drops of water from the lagoon, and we saw lots of cool microscopic animals! How I wish I could take photos of them for you!
