The bird life in Southwest Florida is superb.  Today I enjoyed taking photos of this feisty snowy egret and a great egret. They were uncommonly together for this photo. The photo of the birds over the water are willit’s. They went by the dock twice as I was leaving . I  turned back around and took over 20 shots of this large group of willit’s. Some time you need to just look right in front of you for the best photos. Today was one of those days. Watching the willits fly low on the water,  I was reminded of an old Willie Nelson song,” Angel Flying Too Close To The Ground.”

In 2016 I began solely offering private small boat charters to the islands of Pine Island Sound including Cayo Costa State Park, Cabbage Key, Useppa Island, Pine Island and North Captiva. I am a certified Florida Master Naturalist, licensed USCG Captain, avocational photographer, seashell enthusiast and passionate about the history, people and culture of Southwest Florida, especially Cayo Costa. I volunteer as a member of Friends of Cayo Costa State Park and have great respect for the heritage of Cayo Costa. My goal is to provide guests with an overall experience and appreciation for the waters, islands, shells, plants, marine life, wildlife, history and people of this unique area of Southwest Florida.
