I'm a retired website builder and amateur photographer and decided to merge those two interests with this website.
My interest in photography is primarily due to the variety of birds and the abundance of wildlife in South Florida where I moved to in 2018.
Both the Everglades and Big Cypress National Preserve are a short drive from Naples and where I tend to go to take photos, along with the many closer nature parks, rookeries, and preserves in my area.
The vast majority of photos were taken in Florida, exceptions will be clearly marked.
This Green Heron is a small heron that is solitary at most seasons and often somewhat secretive, living around small bodies of water or densely vegetated areas. Seen in the open, it often flicks its tail nervously, raises and lowers its crest as seen in this photo. The "green" on this bird's back is an iridescent color and often looks dull bluish or simply dark.
