It is Fall in San Elijo Lagoon, and the Egrets are still hunting
Colors are changing and the Marsh looks beautiful
Lizards bask in the sun
Lorquin’s Admiral butterflies are still to be seen lazily making their way over the vegetation and Western-Pygmy Blue butterflies are everywhere but hard to spot.
Shore birds are back: Sandpipers, Dowichers, Willets, Whimbrels and many more
One willet catches a crab
Pied Grebes dive by the edge of the Lagoon
An Osprey flies overhead

Thank you! San Elijo is a magical reserve!
I was there this past week, too. Such a lovely place to reconnect with land, water and wildlife. Thanks for the photos!
I am glad you know it! You have summed it up well – land, water and wildlife.
