About

   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.

Turkey Vulture


The turkey vulture has a bald head like all other vultures so carrion does not adhere to the skin as they would to feathers when they feed by thrusting their heads into the body cavities of rotting animals. At close range, the featherless red head of the adult turkey vultures is said to resemble those of turkeys, hence the origin of their name.
