Beach daisies

Also more commonly called beach sunflower, although it does not look like any sunflowers I am familiar with. At any rate, you see these by the hundreds on the beach edges and dunes.

Ravine Gardens

Ravine Gardens State Park is a New Deal-era state park in Florida built by the WPA (Works Progress/Projects Administration). It's primary draw is the hundreds of thousands of azalea plants that bloom in February and March, and hiking in the 120 foot deep ravines that have been carved by natural springs.

Ready for flight

I believe this bird is an anhinga. They often open their wings to dry them off, but in this case I believe flight was the plan.

The angle I was shooting was looking down on a large pond so, because the water looks like gray sky, it seems there is a cloud of flora above the bird.

I am not a bird photographer but I find it interesting and plan to become better at this kind of photography.
