One of the many expeditions around the world that I would like to do was to travel to Southwest Florida and visit the Burrowing Owls of Cape Coral. I had heard of these darling little owls that live in holes throughout the town. Acting as mascots or perhaps […]
It’s a new scene for me this week as I’m visiting Naples, Florida for a business/pleasure trip. After having to spend an hour or more driving in the dark to arrive to where I want to photograph wildlife, I must admit. Being able to roll out of bed […]
