Florida Birds and Wildlife (Everglades and Big Cypress)
Escape the cold and join us in paradise as we photograph the wild areas of Florida. We will be photographing Alligators, Nesting Eagles, Ospreys, Hawks, Owls, Pelicans, Spoonbills, Herons and Alligators and many more species of wildlife. We will explore beautiful coastlines and swamps. The majority of the time we will spend at my favorite Everglades and Big Cypress national parks.
This workshop is led by professional nature photographer John Slonina who has been leading tours there for several years.
