We then visited the last boardwalk on the trip and were given superb views of three Swallow-tailed Kites as they scanned the skies for Dragonflies to munch. Kite Photo by Fred Hileman

Recap- Half Moon
Another beautiful morning for a leisurely stroll through some of Old Florida's most serene forests. 8 hikers drove into the wildlife management area of Half Moon. Just before the gate and a little distance beyond turned out to be the most active. We drove to the office and then carpooled to the entrance of Mill Road Trail. The photo was taken by Kathy Lemmer on the bridge over Mill Creek. She called it "Fred's Flamingo Pose". Actually I was knocking a mosquito off my leg and did not take the time to avert my attention from a bird that was calling.
