Another walk by Peace River.

We went on another walk in the park (resort).  These signs greet us before we start each walk and we also see them during our journeys.  Keeps you on the look out at all times, but I am always looking anyway because I am taking pix.
This is Peace River close to the resort's boat ramp area.  I must report that we did not see any alligators or snakes on this walk.  But, did see a frog.  He was pretty flat and you can see a few tire tracks from rvs really really close to him.  Poor guy.  He croaked or should I say he will not croak any more. 
      "It's a jungle out there."   To quote the theme song to Monk.
We spotted this beauty making a lot of noise by the river.  I think it is a red shoulder hawk because they have signs along the walk that talk about them. 
Whether wheeling over a swamp forest or whistling plaintively from a river park, a Red-shouldered Hawk is typically a sign of tall woods and water. It’s one of our most distinctively marked common hawks, with barred reddish-peachy underparts and a strongly banded tail. In flight, translucent crescents near the wingtips help to identify the species at a distance. These forest hawks hunt prey ranging from mice to frogs and snakes. 

A group of hawks has many collective nouns, including a "boil", "knot", "spiraling", "stream", and "tower" of hawks.
It looks to me like this guy is looking for something to eat.
This is a spider.  They have webs all over the place on our walkThey are above you.  If you look really close you can see the web he has spun and is holding on to.
Pretty flowers here and there.
A zebra butterfly.
Peace River is not deep here but, is very clear.  You can see the bottom with all the different colors of moss and water plant life.

We also spotted these hoof prints in the sand.  Not sure if they are deer or Farrel pigs.  They did have a potluck dinner here yesterday were they Bar-B-Cued one of the pigs they killed here at the park.  

I always wondered how they made those blocks for the igloos.  LOL

I have finally found a tattoo Rog can get.  I just love it.
