We finally visited Kraft Azalea Park in posh, Winter Park, Florida. Getting there is half the fun, since the homes along the route are palatial - my mouth was agape the whole time. I've always been a sucker for residential grandeur. Plus, the park was beautiful too. The towering Cypress trees were dripping with moss.
Look at this texture!

There were tufted treasures in sky - nesting white egrets! It was hard to get a good photo, since they were actively building nests and fluffing their regal feathers, but I captured a few good ones...
"Look at me!"
Did you know it's the year of the bird? 100 years ago, in 1918, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act was passed. It is considered one of the most important bird protection laws ever. I'm so happy to see these regal feathers happily flying in a tree, instead of decaying in a hat box.
And then there were the bright pink Azaleas. What took us so long?
