Upcoming Library Presentation

I am drafting NJ photography program descriptions for later in 2018. I always enjoy interacting with new photography or nature enthusiasts. Let me know if your camera club, library, or community center is interested in a presentation and I will try to accommodate.

Common Lizards of the Florida Everglades

Only 2 days until my return to Everglades National Park in Florida

Here is a look at two common lizards I photographed at ENP in 2013. Main Park Road in Homestead is teeming with wildlife if you slow down to appreciate the biodiversity.

The Green Anole is a native lizard to the area, whereas the Brown Anole is an introduced animal originating in Cuba.

Photography equipment used for the pictures:

Tamron Lenses USA SP 90mm Macro Lens + Canon T2i + Canon Speedlight 90EXII

Two locations I have done well with for macro wildlife photography within Everglades National Park are Paurotis Pond and the parking area near Pa-Hay-Okee.
