Alligator Alley

_MG_7313Hello everyone!

On my way to Corkscrew Swamp yesterday, I had to stop at Alligator Alley for some photography. It was around 7:00 am and a very foggy morning, just perfect!

For those of my followers and visitors that are not familiar with Alligator Alley, this is interstate I-75, the road that crosses the state between Fort Lauderdale and Naples, FL. On both sides of the road are canals lined where there’s wildlife. As you can see in some of my photos, this is an open place where American Alligator and American crocodiles are plentiful. If you stop at one of the rest areas with boat ramps like I did, you will them very up close and personal!

Hello everyone!

Great day at the Corkscrew Swamp Yesterday…This sanctuary was created to protect the last ancient bold cypress tress in North America, some of them more than 500 years old, the  2.5 miles boardwalk allows you to wonder through a variety of ecosystems.

Wakodahatchee Wetlands

Hello Everyone!

Here is my weekly post…I had a great day at the Wakodahatchee wetland in Delray Beach, FL yesterday…another wonderful and highly recommended spot for birdwatching and wildlife in South Florida.

The name “Wakodahatchee” comes from a Seminole Indian phrase meaning “created waters.” This wetland is man-made next to a an  existing Water Treatment Plant located one mile southeast of the Southern Region Water Reclamation Facility. The 50 acres includes a beautiful boardwalk, loaded with wildlife, where you can find lots of Wood-storks, Egrets, Anhingas…did I mention photographers?

At John Prince Park…

Lots of  Northern rough-winged Swallow birds at the John Prince Park this afternoon._MG_6882

Cool facts…the species derives its name from the outer wing feathers, which have small hooks or points on their leading edges.

Family reunion?
