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.
Saltmarsh Morning Glory is a perennial vine found in Florida’s salt, floodplain, and glade marshes, mangrove, and swamps. Its showy blooms appear in summer and fall. The large nectaries and flowers attract many insects, but it is most visited by bees. Like other members of the morning glory family, it blooms in the morning and begins to wilt and close up by afternoon.
