Just a few more vacation photos from Anna Maria Island...enjoy!
Sweetie taking a closeup off this truly gnarly tree trunk. It's a Silk Floss Tree and it has spines which could be dangerous, but it's beautiful.
Closeup of the trunk next - see how spikey it is?
These were taken at the Palma Sola Botanical Park, a lovely place for a nice walk and they have some interesting plants, tree, shrubs, lakes, etc.
This is a pandanus with some spikey globes (fruit) - another gnarly tree!
Nothing spikey here, and even edible fruit = starfruit :)
Finish off with this gorgeous great white egret - such a beautiful bird, and so used to humans at this pier that it just posed for us. Love Anna Maria Island!
