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.
Baby alligators have many predators to worry about including the other alligators, winged predators such as herons, egrets and eagles. They are noisy even when in their shell and release a high-pitched whimpering sound which signals that it is time for them to hatch. They continue this adorable sound even after they hatch, using it to communicate with their mother who is nearby listening carefully even though you may not see here you need to know she’s watching you.
