Excellent capture. My sister lives in WPB and goes to that refuge often. I hope you had a long lens, I hear the momma can get quite aggressive defending their young. Congrats on your wonderful POTD.

The baby found a good place to hide...it blends in so well with the mother. A great find with wonderful details...congratulations on your POTD!

Wow, Ed, this is some terrific find. I really love how the tiny baby is being carried along by its mother resting between her eyes and is so well camouflaged by blending in perfectly with her color & textures. Congrats!
