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.

Brown Basilisk


The Brown Basilisk is also known as the Jesus lizard from the ability to walk on water. They can't really walk on water but they literally are able to run on water for short distances. Basilisks can grow as large as 2 feet in length and have the “dinosaur” look due to their head shape with a crest that stems from their skull.

The Florida Wildlife Commission isn't sure what, if any, threat brown basilisks pose to native species so they are not, at present, considered invasive.
