Default New course

Different course this time and more verity of wildlife, this course suffered some damage for hurricane Charley in 2004 but is back to normal now. Iím torn between shooting the course or the wildlife so I did a little of both.

Very nice shots! The Anhinga is sure an odd-looking bird, I've never seen one. And I am not so sure I'd want to play that course with the alligators around!

Do you actually play golf? Or do you let other parties play through while you take pictures? Your photos are awesome, who would have imagined that golf courses could be so fruitful for photographers.

Sand hill cranes summer in the high arctic. I have seen large flocks of them in Tuktoyaktuk in the Northwest Territories as well as Baker Lake Nunavut. Great shots here.

Thanks Harriett, Yes I do play golf, I didn't hit a ball for about 4 or 5 holes but kept up with the other guys in our group, didn't hold up anybody. The wildlife is used to being ignored by golfers and you can get quite close. The gaters also ignore you.

Thanks Ira,
