Southwest Florida Birds and Wildlife Images

I took a trip to Southwest Florida to photograph the shorebirds during there spring migration. I planned to visit several of the famous wildlife areas there, including Ding Darling NWR, Venice Rookery, Corkscrew Swamp and Estero Beach. I also was able to see the very tame Burrowing Owls up around Cape Coral, Florida. Florida is an interesting mix of encroaching civilization and superb wildlife opportunities. My fervent hope is that will continue to find a way to coexist.
