It was cold and windy over at the Homossasa Springs Wildlife Park this morning. Lots of wild manatees hanging out near the spring head, the fishbowl. The waters were choppy.
The water level was very high, quite the opposite of where it as seen in the image below from just two days ago. Torrential rain yesterday.
Using my poloroid sunglasses as a filter in front of my lens, I was able to catch this pod of manatees huddled by the shore just inside the bridge. There were several other groups at the fishbowl and at several spots along the river between there and the bridge. I counted roughly about 30-40.
Both beaches in the alligator lagoon was underwater.
