Black Lagoon creature arrives at Capitol


About 100 people attended a rally promoting tougher legislation to protect springs in front of the Capitol on Tuesday. The highlight: Sen. Lee Constantine, R-Altamonte Springs, high-fiving a person dressed as the Creature of the Black Lagoon. (Luckily for him, he's term limited, otherwise we can imagine quite a campaign flier.)

(The high-five came after we snapped the picture. The bird in the photo was there to represent the birds that enjoy clear water at Wakulla Springs.)
