Between the Everglades and the Gulf of Mexico, among the housing tracts, condos, shopping malls and tourist resorts, there are natural habitats that have been spared, where wildlife thrives. J. N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, Estero Lagoon, Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Venice Rookery and other such places attract bird photographers from all over. I am lucky enough to live here. I love to photograph the birds. I can’t resist the dance of the reddish egret.
