Early Fall in San Elijo

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
