We had a pretty good morning at Orlando Wetlands Park. We didn’t see anything terribly unusual, but there were some fun photographic moments. Well, not so fun for rabbits. One of the first sights we saw was a Red-shouldered Hawk with a rabbit (perhaps a Marsh Hare). We also saw several Purple Gallinules, and one was pretty close, allowing me to get some photos. On the way back, we saw a Sora and a Sandhill Crane fledgling walking with his parents near by.
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.
