Highlights of Florida Trails. Part 2.

Sunrise at Corkscrew Swamp.

You may have seen some of these photos before - but not all. Besides, this is a highlights reel...

Splendor in the grass.

Limpkin, but not lame. 





Spindly things.

Old mates.

Yellow Butterflies.

Yellow petals.



Forest through the trees.


Water droplets.

P.S. Be sure to drop over to see some of my favorite Guatemala photos from our trip in 2018. Over at My 3rd Eye!

I visited Corkscrew my last visit to FL, unfortunately I hit is just as a school bus of 1st graders were visiting...BUT I still saw a barred owl, and other awesome critters. Your photos are really great!

I love nature shots and these are amazing. You did well to capture the butterfly, I always have so much trouble taking their photo.
