Undeveloped Florida

June 13, 2016

On a recent visit to Florida my family moved away from all the over-development of the Orlando area and headed south to take an airboat tour through lakes that feed the Everglades. This is protected land and is very rural and largely untouched (except for the straightening of the rivers by the Army Corp of Engineers). This was my first time on an airboat and it was a great experience. Below are some of the wildlife on display. All were taken with my Nikon D90, 18-200 lens, and edited in Lightroom.


The bird is a Mexican Eagle. Those are wild cows that roam the area. The bottom left is an American Alligator.

  1. Glad you had the opportunity to experience the real Florida. Seeing a crested caracara was special I know many people who live in Florida that would love to see one.


  2. Apparently he is a regular for the tour – he likes peanut butter crackers!
