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.
Curly-tailed lizards were introduced to Florida in the early 1940s to combat sugar cane pests. As is typically the case this was a mistake. Curly Tail Lizards are omnivorous and they will eat insects, flowers, fruit, smaller lizards, and human food. The result appears to be that where they are found, no other lizards can be found.
