FLORIDA - FEB / MAR 2015

FLORIDA HAS LONG BEEN RECOGNISED AS ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING DESTINATIONS IN THE U.S.A. FOR BIRD PHOTOGRAPHY. SO MANY WATERBIRDS BEING INCREDIBLY TAME ALLOWS A FOR VARIETY OF IMAGES TO BE EASILY TAKEN, RANGING FROM CLOSE UPS TO 'BIRD IN HABITAT' SHOTS. MANY WERE ALSO ACTIVELY NESTING AT THIS TIME OF YEAR, SO FLIGHT SHOTS AND NESTING IMAGES WERE FAIRLY STRAIGHTFORWARD. PLENTY OF OTHER WILDLIFE WAS CONSPICUOUS TOO. ALL LOCATIONS VISITED WERE IN CENTRAL-SOUTH FLORIDA, ON BOTH COASTS AND THE INTERIOR, IN A FORTNIGHT TRIP. MOST OFFERED EXCEPTIONAL PHOTOGRAPHIC OPPORTUNITIES.                                                            

HERE IS A SMALL SAMPLE OF THE PHOTOS TAKEN ON THE TRIP - I COULD HAVE PUT HUNDREDS ON...
