great blue heron, key west, florida.

great blue heron, key west, florida. i don't think i've ever been so close to a heron in my life. he was just going about his business looking for fish on the boat ramp. i thought he looked a little rough around the edges, but great blue herons often look shaggy like this guy.

lionfish in captivity, key west, florida.

lionfish in captivity, key west, florida, lionfish (pterois volitans) are invasive to the caribbean, and their populations are exploding without any natural predators. their spines are dangerous to humans, but they are delicious if you find them on a menu or can participate in a fishing derby. this one lives at the florida eco-discovery center, and he certainly wasn't shy.
