so here is a blitz of wildlife shots i've gotten while i've been in florida. some good ones i think. i'll try to caption each one a bit.
tricolor heron. he was hunting for little fishes.
roseate spoonbills (the pink) and wood storks. the spoonbills, quite obviously, have a spoon-shaped bill - so crazy unique. and the wood storks are federally endangered.
the florida softshell turtle. super weird looking but very cool. their necks can stretch out almost their full body length.
i think this guy is a baby florida redbelly cooter (not entirely sure with how small it was).
eastern diamondback rattlesnake folks. almost freakin STEPPED on this guy - he was stretched out across the path. yikes.
anhinga #1. these guys have such character to them. and their wing designs are so gorgeous.
there you are - some more samples of what i've seen down here.
