Saturday's Critters #161


Saturday's Critters #161



Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.

Just an FYI, I accidentally deleted some of my comments on my last post, I meant to delete an anonymous comment. So if I have not visited your post that maybe why. I always try to return visits to everyone who comments on my post. Sorry!

These images are from our visit to the Circle B Bar Reserve on Nov 9th.

Lakeland, Florida

Hello,

My sunrise shots from Nov 9th, 2016. I love the beautiful colors and reflections. These were taken during our walk to our gym at the clubhouse.


"When you stop and look around,  this life is pretty amazing."


"There isn't a day of my life that I do not marvel at the beauty that surrounds me and give thanks."

I am grateful and thankful for all the time I spend with nature.

I am thankful for the trees that give our environment life. They help to clean the air we breathe.

I am thankful for the birds that sing.
