A couple of hours at Everglades National Park

I just wanted to share a couple of pictures of the small trip. This morning I woke up and decided to go to the Everglades and take some pictures of the wildlife. Ended up making it out there around 5:15pm, schlepping as usual.

Enjoy.

If you look closely he has a tiny fish in his beak

















As I was leaving, caught the sunset

Great pics! Get any driftwood? Or is that not allowed in a National Park.

I keep seeing a smudge in the middle top area. I think its dust in either your lens or CMOS sensor. You can see the smudge the best in the first two pics and the last one.

You are absolutely right! Time to clean the lenses.

Thanks for looking out. I would never have noticed that actually.

Cool

Wow I love the Everglades. I haven't been there in a while ... great pictures though! And yeah I see the smudges too but with a little editing it's gone

P.S. If anyone ever decides to go there on vacation I recommend the Shark Valley tour It's awesome!

I was thinking the same thing...

Shots look great by the way! Can't even notice the smudge... and I usually notice those things

How about for the caption for the fish being eaten...

hey no problem.

if you want to get REALLY technical....its a buteo extimus sub color. :P

osprey are quiet large birds, close to the size of a bald eagle. they are white, brown/black wings and have a band of brown/black around their eyes.
