Yesterday afternoon I dropped by the Econ River Wilderness Area. I had a meeting nearby, and I thought I’d go there early to check it out. I wasn’t expecting to find a lot there, but I was surprised at how few birds I found. I ended up devoting most of my attention to the many dragonflies that were there. I photographed four species, and two of them were new to me: a Roseate Skimmer and Bar-winged Skimmer.
Scott Simmons, based in Florida, is a lover of nature, landscape, and wildlife photography. Scott became interested in photography in 2001 when he was given his first SLR camera. When he acquired a telephoto lens, he became progressively more interested in birds and other wildlife. Scott enjoys learning about bird habitats and behavior, striving always to take images that are both beautiful and interpretive. Scott believes photography is a great vehicle to help others to appreciate the wonder for the stuff of earth.
