Today I am posting a selection of images that I took at Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge in Florida.This is where Cape Canaveral has its base and NASA and the Wildlife Conservancy work hand in hand to protect the natural habitats for all the species of birds,insects,animals and reptiles that are present there.
I had an early morning start which is unusual for me !!!!!!! and spent a few hours driving through the swamps and mangroves stopping from time to time to take a few pictures.Bearing in mind the place is full of Gators and snakes and I was particularly wary of meeting up with a Water Moccassin...not reccommended.
Here is a selection and I hope you feel a lot warmer after looking at them.
All images straight from the card with no processing.
Large is best if you have time and thank you for looking in.
