It is. Florida is full of non native fish, including multiple species of armored cats. Somehow the herons manage to eat them, I see it all the time.

Fantastic photo, twin city!

Tilapia are a big problem here but the biggest worry is they've found peacock bass in some waterways up north. They could devastate a native fishery if unchecked.

Red headed woodpecker - not to be confused with the red bellied wp. Once common, their numbers are declining. Thanks for viewing. Lee

Very nice series of shots, Lee. All nice poses, but I get a kick out the the second image.

Almost got wet here.... lol Western Sandpiper... Was crazy... a small group of them came very close, and then all decided to have a nap. Perhaps 6-8 feet away from me. Most of the shots were not great because of too many in the frame..... this is the best solitary I got.
