Spring has sprung! Love is in the air…and water…and living room!


Ain’t spring grand?

It’s THAT time of year!  Ahhhhhhhhhh. romance!  I’ve put together some pics and clips to illustrate what spring brings to southwest Florida.  Above you’ll find Matilda and Matt the manatees dining out.  Yep, dating.  Below is a pic of them swimming off in the sunset?  Well, swimming off anyway.

And they lived happily ever-after?

Then there are those who are looking for a mate.  At the slightest hint of the opposite sex, those horny rascals are on the hunt.  Take Arturo the alligator.  Even imitating the warbling of a winsome gator lass will bring him right to your feet.  Watch him be a sucker for a gator call.

Feel sorry for poor Arturo, he’s having trouble finding just that right piece of tail.  He’s asked me to help him by putting his best photo forward. It’s below.

Ain't I boootiful --- chomp, chomp?

Then there’s our bird friends.  They get right with the program!  They’re in love, they’re on the nest, then — WHAM, BAM, CRACK — and look what’s in the nest.  Examine the second pic carefully to see all three night heron babies.

How quickly they grow - if you can see them

Even my friend Trooper is in an amorous way.  How do you say NO without hurting a guy’s feelings?  I’m silent and just stay sitting.

Sorry Trooper

Sorry Trooper
