Where did all the birds go???? I headed out to the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo for a long walk on a recent hot Saturday morning. The rain was coming later in the day. The only birds I saw there were mockingbirds and moorhens. Did all the birds fly north for the summer? Don't they know it's hotter up there than it is down here? There were some beautiful flowers there so I was glad I brought my small lens along. I changed lens for the morning since I didn't need my 500mm. I wished I had also brought my close up filters to use. It was really to hot to focus on getting some macro shots though. I had to keep moving. If I stopped for more than 30 seconds I felt like I was going to pass out. My last stop was the car before stepping over the little black snake on the trail back.
