Back to the Glades
Finally, the long, hot and stifling, mosquito ridden summer is over. November is right around the corner and for South Florida wildlife aficionados that means back to the Everglades. Cooler temperatures and lower water levels invite boardwalk strolls on the Anhinga Trail and sightseeing from National Park roads and paths. As winter approaches birds from northern climes will adorn trees and pond boundaries, but even now year-round avian residents and early visitors provide for viewing pleasure.
Here are a few photos that I captured in recent weeks while visiting Everglades National Park.
Water loving birds:
I thoroughly enjoy watching wildlife in their natural habitats. I will admit that park benches and rails are not totally natural, but I doubt that the birds know that.
