I took a couple of hours last January to capture some images from the Circle B Bar Ranch park in south Lakeland in Polk County, Florida. Here are a couple of my favorites:
Anhinga, drying wings.
A nice trail picture.
Another great trail shot with a moss-laden tree.
When I first transferred from Pennsylvania to Lakeland Florida, I had some spare time on my hands, and decided to check out some of the local parks and capture some images of birds and the great hiking trails and water scenes available.
Here are a couple of images from Lettuce Lake Park near Tampa. The wooden walkways allow you to get very close to the water – to see the animals and get up close to the Mangrove trees.
The trails over land are also impressive. I really enjoy seeing Spanish moss in the trees here in Florida.
I plan to spend more time in Florida’s amazing parks, and do some hiking on the trails!
