Lake Lilly, 4/23/2012

Limpkin
This morning I had to drop off my pool pump to a repair shop, but I got to the shop before they opened.  I was near a lake in Maitland called Lake Lilly, so I decided to walk around the lake to see what I might find until the shop opened at 8am.  For me, the biggest highlights were the Limpkin at the shore and the Tufted Titmice that were in the trees around the lake.  I watched the Limpkin open a shell and extract its meat, and the titmice were very good at putting on a nice little show in the trees.

But the lake also capitalized in cuteness this morning.  The lake had many Muscovy Ducks with many cute little ducklings, and there was a nice little bunny there that let me get pretty close to take its portrait.  I figured with all this cuteness, I'd let the all-time expert on cuteness, in my six-year old daughter, give her thoughts on what follows.

Muscovy Duckling
Julianna likes its black and yellow feathers, and she likes its eyes and beak, because they are cute.  She likes its feet because they are small and cute.  She also like the grass by the duck.

Julianna likes its ears because they're very big, and because they have pink in them. She also likes its little whiskers and its cute, black eyes. She likes its brown fur with gray in it.

Red-Bellied Woodpecker
Julianna thinks that woodpeckers are one of her favorite birds, but she wonders why it's called a Red-bellied Woodpecker when it only has a little bit of red on its belly.  She says she likes its red head, and she also likes its black and white back.  She likes its feet because it "camouflages" into tree, and she also likes when woodpecker pecks the wood, and she wonders if the woodpecker made the hole in tree.
