A nice 27-28" Redfish I sight fished today in the morning low tide. There were a lot of red's on the very shallow mud flats and after five other attempts I caught this guy ! The reds were not grouped together but were either solo or in pairs as they foraged through the mud..
Fachahatchee Strand Preserve did a controlled burn on some of the prairie lands a couple of weeks ago and I went and did a little hike through the area the other day. I was thinking with the new grass just starting to grow I might have a chance to spot a panther. When I got into the area I saw a few different groups of deer grazing and knew there were no panthers around this day. A ways back as I walked I came across two deer, a young buck and doe. Trying to be stealthy I made my way towards them to try and photograph them. Before long they spotted me. Instead of spooking, I was a little surprised when they made their way towards me. I guess I maybe was something they had never seen before and they were curious. They came fairly close to me and the buck at one point started stamping his feet coming even closer. I stepped out from behind the bush where I was supposedly hiding and he stopped and ran back the few yards near the doe. I watched as they casually made their way across the meadow as I made my way back to my car.
