Florida XIII – some more birds

Florida was so far the best birding experience in my short „career“ of wildlife photographer and only those living in avergae-bird-populated area in Europe can understand that feeling of amazement when entering for the first time the famous birding spots in Florida. After three weeks spent in Florida, from which ca. 10 I could use for bird photography, the memory cards were so full of pictures that it took me almost 8 months to go throug it and select the best images. There were hundreds and thousands of pictures that were delted – majority of a quality that one would keep if it was taken in Europe or elswhere. That is also the reason many wildlife photographers head every year to more or less exotic destinations, where the birds are more tame and where the effort to make beautiful image is nothing more than checking out the nearest pond.

Black Skimmer (Rynchops niger)

These pictures were taken at Bay Bunche Beach Reserve in Fort Myers – the birds were sitting still in the shallow waters so I tried to get them up. It was partialy successful as you can see but being in the cold water for ca. 2 hours made my muscles so stiff so I could hardly stand up and walk to my car...
