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 Little Blue Heron is one of my favorite birds that is probably a close relative of the Snowy Egret. It looks much like a Snowy when it is young, but molts to a dark slate-blue plumage as an adult as is seen in my photo. They are said to be generally wary and hard to approach which isn't my experience.
