It was a cloudless morning so the sunrise wasn’t spectacular. Other than that the not to be taken for granted fact that sun rose another day. There was a nice orange glow for a few minutes.
An Alligator was out moving around early.
A Great Blue Heron announced his presence.
The same GBH passed a pair of Tricolored Herons going the other way.
Just before the sun topped the tree line the orange intensified.
