Apopka, in the Seminole language, means Potato eating people, of course, but some translate it "trout eating". There are, however, no trout that I am aware of in the lake, being that they prefer much cooler water. There are native Large mouth bass, catfish, sunfish of several varieties, crappie and sunshine bass.
Another project for photography class, and as we move at the speed of the bird watchers, we find many a lovely subject. There must have been a hundred birders out that day. The weather was beautiful and it is the time of year for winter migration.
Besides the Coots, gallinules, herons and ospreys, there were flowers, turtles alligators and gar.
Forty years old and still in awe of the outdoors.
