Finding my way back into the Everglades
is always a worthwhile journey,
something I look forward to
as often as my busy schedule permits.

Not only am I able to meander among
the varied nestings of wild birds
but also track some of the few remaining
Florida panthers and an occasional bobcat
crossing my pathway.  But the most
interesting and somewhat rare creature
I encounter is the Ivory-billed woodpecker
until fairly recent time thought extent.

Of course there’s the abundance of small
and often rather large snakes moving through
the murky waters and around the mangroves.
Mindful of these many critters peopling the
swampy areas I seek photos rather than
hunting for family feedings as brothers do.
