Everglades National Park, FL – If you want to photograph an anhinga, a diving bird that spears fish on its bill, this is pretty much the place to go. Along with anhingas, there’s a bewildering array of other birds from elegant snowy egrets to gnome-like green herons. Snakes and alligators are also seen from the safety of the boardwalks, easy places from which to make great photos. Also look for unusual insects such as brightly colored grasshoppers and butterflies. For a change of pace from wandering the boardwalks, a kayak excursion is a excellent way to observe wildlife.
