Friday Field Trip: The Everglades

While we were traveling from Florida to Colorado, Jason was doing the reverse. Since I haven't had a chance to do much Colorado photography yet, I thought I'd share some of his wildlife pictures from his trip. I think you'll agree, he got some great shots.

This batch was taken in Everglades National Park. The critter to the right is an anhinga. Usually, you see them with their wings fanned out (they don't have oil glands, so they have to dry their wings after they dive for fish). This one seemed as interested in Jason as in getting dry Or maybe the bird just wanted some privacy.

These are only some of them. You'll have to keep coming back to see more. Or, you can visit his website and see all the different places he's been. Plus, he caught a great shot of an anhinga chowing down on a fish. I left it off this page in case there are those who prefer not to see the reality of life in the wild. But you can see it for yourself here.

Jemi - I agree. Jason does some good work, if I do say so myself.

Great shots! Love the detail. And the way the anhinga was looking at your son. (other Terry)

I've never seen or heard of an anhinga before. That shot fascinates me. That bird has a penetrating glare. Wonderful!

Happy to share. And I know he's got lots more; these were just a few from his first day.

What beautiful photographs Terry. I've always been fascinated by the everglades and would love to visit them although I don't expect I ever will, I live in the UK and don't travel a lot. Lovely to see the pictures and imagine what it would be like, though.
