Great photo. Do you only photograph in Florida?
Great Pictures! I have got to get me a lens for wildlife as I do not have a good zoom lens at all. I spend about 7 months in NC Smoky Mountains and really love to get better pictures of the wildlife. Have you hiked the AT? Great shots and I did not know that you could attach auctions and things to your Twitter account. I need to read more about Twitter as I do not tweet regularly. Thanks again for sharing your talent!
