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.
This photo was taken at Corkscrew Sanctuary during alligator mating season when this male was courting a nearby female. The male, pictured, was rasing the front half of its body out the water and splashing back down while bellowing loudly. It was fascinating to see so much activity for a typically quiet and idle alligator.
