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 Dry Tortugas are a small group of islands, located in the Gulf of Mexico at the end of the Florida Keys, about 67 miles west of Key West.
“Tortugas” means turtles in Spanish, the name “Dry” was given to the island to indicate to other mariners that the landmass lacked fresh water,
