One of my favorite things to do for an hour or so on a pretty day is going to our local wetlands. All. By. Myself. Just me and my trusty camera. I like to walk the 1/2 mile loop on the boardwalk and watch the birds. So many birds. I love seeing how the parents build the nests, then the mamas lay their eggs and watch over them… and a few weeks later the noise level exponentially increases when the babies start hatching. And watching them grow, and take their first flight is fun and awesome. I call it my therapy. I come home relaxed and refreshed. Nature has a tendency to do that. But also spending time behind the lens trying to capture the beauty around us.
Here is a collection of photos from some recent stops at the Wakodahatchee Wetlands in Delray Beach, Florida.
