Gee--I can't tell. Great capture.
There is something just mind-bending about this photo, staring at it and trying to sort out what you're seeing where the two heads come together...
Thanks for dropping by! I couldn't tell either, and I was actually there watching these two critters for about 15 minutes! I'm still baffled.
A dragonfly and the nymphal shell it emerged from?
Interesting possibility--I don't really know enough about the life cycle of dragonflies to say anything useful about this. Definitely worth some research!
Very interesting image. Well done!!
Hi Felicia,Cool photo! I thought about you yesterday! I was drving around a lake in Clermont yesterday and there were two HUGE cranes trying to cross the street. I stopped to look at them and they just stood there and looked in my window. So close! No camera. They were brownish with red caps. I drove by, they looked both ways and crossed the street! Were they whooping cranes? Two cranes flew over the lake where I was a couple of days prior calling with a whoop, whoop sound.Patti
Hi Patti,It must have been fun to see those cranes up close! Sandhills are brownish at this time of year and have red on their heads; whoopers are white (but can be kind of sandy-colored too). As far as I know, just about all whoopers in Florida are tagged/banded, so if the birds you saw had colored bands on their legs, they could have been whoopers. If not, they were probably Sandhills. Do you remember if they had bands or not?
Shoot, I didn't see their feet. Only the chest and face were in the window. I was the only car on the road, going really slow, and admiring the view when suddenly there they were and I stopped. I didn't look at the feet driving off. They didn't seem startled by my car but I was startled to see them! What surprised me is that they actually looked before crossing the street! If my window had been opened I could have touched them! Amazing!I just looked up sandhill crane and do think that's what they were!Patti
