We have a pretty good canal system, here in the Hammock. It drains most of the water to the lake. I took a bike ride to see if I could get a picture of the 4 –5’ gator I had seen a few days ago. No luck but did see this male Eastern Pondhawk.
Very pretty blue. He wouldn’t turn and look at me. but, you can see his head is a dark green.
It looks like his “helmet” has green dots around the edge. It’s amazing how they are put together.
