Fort Myers Beach Wildlife

120

Here are two photos I took in the Fort Myers Beach area. The first photo is of a Bottlenose Dolphin taken on a nature tour of Estero Bay. The second photo is of a Great Egret perched in the top of a tree in Bowditch Park, Fort Myers Beach glazing into the sun.

The Bottlenose dolphin is a social mammal, which uses a sonar like technique called echolocation to find food and navigate.

The Great Egret is a member of the heron family and was adopted as the symbol of the National Audubon Society in 1953, which was formed partially to prevent the killing of birds for their feathers. Hope your readers enjoy.
