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.
The Flamingo image is inseparable from Florida and has been assumed as a non-native species brought in as novelty birds from regions where they are native. The newest data shows that they are native that was nearly hunted to extinction for their distinctive colored feathers. There's very strong evidence that they are slowly recovering as native groups are spotted breeding within southeast Florida.
