We just visited Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary and the highlight was this Barred Owl. Barred Owls nest there in hollow trees and, if you're lucky, you will see one sitting right next to the boardwalk. Their hooting sounds like, "Who-Cooks-For-You."
It's not just the birds that give you special moments there. This beautiful Ruddy Daggerwing butterfly posed on a leaf out in the water.
A Great Egret balanced on the boardwalk rail, its breeding plumes hanging down like a bridal veil.
Northern Parula Warblers were everywhere in the low light of the Cypress forest canopy, some were singing and about to migrate.
Black-crowned Night-Herons were active, even though it was daylight.
Beauty is where you find it when you're a photographer like I am, and its often right in front of your nose. I don't pass up a photo up just because it's a common bird, like this White Ibis.
Corkscrew Swamp Audubon Sanctuary, in Naples, Florida, is a magical place, be sure and visit when you go to south Florida.
