This afternoon I finally took the opportunity to tour the 31 acre Largo Central Park Nature Preserve. And boy, am I glad I did as there was an impressive array of wildlife on display.

They were unusually tolerant of my presence, allowing me to capture some nice closeups. I presume they are used to people, not only those wandering the preserve but the golfers on the course adjacent.

I will certainly be back for another visit!

Top to bottom, left to right: Snowy Egret, Eastern Gray Squirrel, Reddish Egret, Tricolored Heron, American White Ibis, Limpkin, Yellow-crowned Night-Heron, American Alligator, Green Heron.

  1. Tell me if you get this. I’ve always found it difficult to reply to your posts, but this is easy so I hope it flies. The photos are gorgeous. A little too close to the alligator though!

    • Sorry to hear that about commenting, I’ll look into it. I do receive your comments though (and I reply as well). Thanks for the compliments. As for the sleepy gator, I was safely up on the boardwalk out of harm’s way.
