I was momentarily distracted in tracking a southern black racer by this Cuban brown anole. The photograph doesn't do it justice. This was one big and beautiful Cuban brown anole!

This little skipper was fluttering about the southern end of L. Pond road near Marsh Bay Creek at Merritt Island. I've seen many over the years, but rarely get decent photographs for one reason or another.

Thanks to cyric for helping tag the formal identification!

An awkward, non-revealing photograph for sure... Still, this is the black-necked stilt, a curious little shorebird commonly seen strutting through central Florida's shallow waters. At Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, they are an common staple to any given day trip.

Red-winged blackbirds are extremely common in the Marsh Bay Creek area of Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge -- or, at least they were from 2005-2007. I haven't been back to this area in quite some time.

Atlantic Salt Marsh Snake Nerodia clarkii ssp. taeniata

Observer

jansonjones

Date

April 23, 2006

Description

This is not a pure Atlantic salt marsh snake. It is a hybrid between N. c. taeniata and the Florida watersnake, Nerodia fasciata pictiventris. Atlantic salt marsh snakes have been hybridizing with the Florida watersnakes, the latter having moved into their territory in recent years. Pure Atlantic salt marsh snakes are increasingly rare, as their populations have been greatly diminished.

Note the dorsal stripe over the front third of this individuals back and the amazing ventral pattern. Florida watersnakes never have such clean striping on their ventral scales. An amazing individual.

This remarkable Florida king snake was hunting on the side of a obscure and winding dirt road in Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, flanked by water on both side of the road. Massive, extremely muscular, remarkably smooth, and surprisingly tolerant of my presence, this snake was an incredible experience.
