Those that have followed my photo blog for some time know that I am partial to zoom lenses that can frame the picture in a variety of ways. Zoom lenses have some disadvantages (like more difficulty in low light situations and their weight) but I have preferred them for nearly 40 years for their ability to help frame the shot. They are especially valuable for wildlife photography.
The images that follow are taken from a stop Pat and I made on the way back from Naple’s Botanical Gardens. Pat had noticed a shack on the way to the gardens and pulled into an empty lot to get a better look. The first four images are taken from the same general spot, but with different size zoom settings from my 55-300 zoom lens. The last picture adds a bit of human interest from a different angle.

It has been a few weeks since I have posted due, in part, to Michigan’s perpetual dark-cloud winter and a fractured collarbone. Last week we were able to visit friend Pat in Naples, Florida. During the visit we were able to take a photo safari to the Everglades. Our trip was focused (pun intended) on photographing some of the unbelievable rich diversity of Everglades’ birds. Here is a bit of what we saw.
