I found these pink blobs stuck to the plants by a pond and took pictures
because I wondered what they were. They're Apple Snail Eggs. I didn't
bother to do much more research on them at the time, because I was busy
Then I started paying more attention to the
Limpkins and other
water birds by the
pond. The birds keep leaving shells on my lawn that dull my lawnmower
blades, but they're beautiful to watch.
Now that I've started paying attention to the birds, I'm more
interested in their food, so I'll see if I can find some snail shells to
photograph and add here. There are at least five species of Apple Snails
in Florida; I wonder how many I can find...
