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.
When I first learned that Wood Storks lived in my area I did some reading about them including some mistaken beliefs that their knees bend backward. This isn't a very good photo but it does show why this belief is so common. In reality, what appears to people as knees are really the Wood Storks ankles. Their knees are close to their body and can be more easily understood by viewing these wonderful birds as walking on their toes that extend from the misidentified knees.
