Thanks Howard and Linda...now I know the names of most of the birds I photographed during our trip through Shark Valley.

We're almost back to Murrells Inlet and have this unbelieveable urge to turn South and go right back to the Everglades...

Enjoying it through your eyes now.

Outstanding photos (and video :). You guys really did out do yourselves this time!

Thanks so much for posting the birds with names. We have seen a few of them around here but haven't been able to find pictures to know what they are. It's hard to tell going to the internet. What a great side trip. Jim says we're headed that way, if not now it will be next year.

My Little One would LOVE it if you had "all alligators all of the time!" She loved Linda's videos and all the pictures. Alligators (and octopi) are her favorite animals. Strange, I know. But they ARE fascinating creatures!!

Great pictures, as always. Glad you are enjoying your time there.

Post more 'gator shots for Katie! :-)

Kerri in AL :-)

Wow! Me Tarzan, You insane.... over alligators, right!

Actually, the alligator grabbed the feather for camouflage to attract the egret... looks like it sortof worked, too. I just never saw a 'gator give up that quickly, before.. must have finally realized it was not a female's feather.

Great shots, though! Keep it up.

Pretty cool adventure. Reminded me of the late 60's when I was stationed at Homestead AFB. My duty station was a Nike Hercules Missile battery located south of the city of Homestead and in the Everglades. The launch site was at the end of the road. Driving to the site was daily, one could see gators and a variety of birds and large snakes.
Thanks for sharing.

Great pictures as usual! Thanks for the videos, they really make you feel like you are there too. Awesome!

When I used to visit my parents at Goodland on Marco Island, for free entertainment we used to slowly drive up Turner River Road and count gators. It is a dirt road off 41 somewhere around Everglades City. There is a picnic area at the start of it right on 41. I think our highest was 105 in about a mile. Eventually we would just turn around and come back. We thought it was great fun.

Nice bird pics from Shark Valley. Brought back some nice memories for us. It's hard to show restraint taking photos when there are so many good opportunities, eh?
