Taking off for Little Tybee

On a foggy, January morning, Kevin, Mike and I took off from the south side of Tybee Island to camp a night on Little Tybee, an uninhabited barrier island and nature preserve.

I’ve not been able to identify what entity manages the preserve, but it seems that camping is allowed, which suggests that it’s not a national refuge like the nearby Wassaw Island or under an easement and privately owned like Ossabaw Island.

Sheepshead or Convict Fish

Some sheepshead (Sparidae, Archosargus probatocephalus) at Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River, Florida.  Their common name comes from the set of incisor-like teeth visible from the front,  and molar-like teeth visible in the open mouth.
