Hidden Lake Gardens, near Tipton, Michigan is a 755 acre botanical garden and arboretum operated by Michigan State University. Yesterday fellow photoblogger Pat and I pranced (okay, so neither of us prance anymore, we ambled) through the woods trying to capture some of the sights of early spring. Here are some of my favorite shots from yesterday.

The Everglades are teeming with all kinds of birds; fowl, scavengers, predators, and other bird words. Here is Part 1 of a 2-day feathery things post.

Probably the most popular attraction in the Everglades are the alligators. There are an estimated one million gators in the Everglades and a little more than one thousand crocodiles. My spouse joined Pat and I on this year’s prowl through a very accessible part of the Everglades. Along a 25-mile gravel road their are small ponds where you can find fish, rare birds, and alligators. This year we didn’t see many large gators. Pat thinks they might have gone to deeper waters due to the rather low water level this year. I was still careful when getting out of the van because of almost stepping on the tail of a 10-12 footer last year. We saw mostly 6-8 foot adult alligators and were fortunate to see seven very young ones as well. Here are some shots from the Gatorglades:

The lyrics from Fiddler on the Roof may at least be part of the explanation for our fascination with sunrises and sunsets.
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears.”
Naples, Florida is known for its sunsets, but I hope you will also enjoy my Everglades sunrise photo.
