Every Day's a New Day At Green Cay... Some Creatures Coming and Some Critters Going!
I'm out at Green Cay in Boynton Beach almost every day for my morning walk. Besides the foot and back friendly boardwalk and the wonderful friends my husband and I have met there, I love it because you never know what you're going to see.
I've introduced you to my Gator friends and shown you moorhen nests and I've learned to carry my camera with me whenever I go. I also learned this last week that carrying a plastic bag with you to protect your camera comes in very handy for unexpected rain showers.
However... one day this past week held some very different surprises for me!
We walk along the same walk every day... I know almost every paver along the path, but when I looked down into the little plants along it one day these wonders of nature were everywhere! I could see a few of the chrysalis moving but it was just to slow to catch on video. I wish I had some kind of time lapse photography gizmo!
The next day... there were only a handful left in the plants. At least I was there to see them come into our world!
My second surprise surprised my little friend as well! We're used to seeing a critter or two on the boardwalk... the 2 legged kind don't bother us but usually the 4 legged ones stay away from us. Bobcats usually will scurry ahead of you while crossing but never close. So when I turned the corner to see this guy... we were both surprised!
I fumbled with my camera and got a few shots of the little guy as he scurried away. Others had seen him on the boardwalk as well so he was either rabid or one of the juveniles we suspected were around. Either way... off he went!
If you're in this area... take a trip out to Green Cay... and give me a call and I'll give you a personal guided tour!
