Florida is one of the better bird watching spots I've had the pleasure of photographing. Many of the animals are remarkably comfortable being viewed even at close distances. This makes for a unique wildlife photography opportunity. With a warm climate and abundance of water, the gulf coast is home to a massive variety of breeds. Some of my favorites are Great Blue Herons, Tri-Colored Herons, Egrets, Storks, Cranes, Cormorants, Moorhens, and Anhingas. I was able to see all of these and more in a single weekend near Clearwater.
