Sanibel Island  FL by kl61 Sanibel Island  FL by kl61
You'll never see Florida more beautiful than in its natural, unspoiled state at the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge. Encompassing more than 5000 acres, this extraordinary refuge on the north side of Sanibel Island provides nesting sites for over 200 species of birds, many of them threatened of endangered, and an ecological system that is sanctuary for hundreds of species of wildlife.

beautiful, I had to fave it ... I grew up in Florida and this just takes me back :)
It was scenes like this that made me love nature as a kid, and still fill my memories.
I agree with your comment that we'd probably have a ball out photographing ...

Sanibel Island is a beautiful place, I visited there back in '93 or was it '94?
This is a very warm and sumptuous shot, well done.

This is an awesome shot! It looks like something you'd see in a brochure for the everglades. This is a very warming shot!

Beautiful catch, really, the colours are amazing, making that silhouette from the bird. This is not something you see often, also the pose of the spoonbill

You have catched beautiful colours here and the branches support nicely the main topic. ;)
