Lakeland and Central Florida Nature Photographs

When I first transferred from Pennsylvania to Lakeland Florida, I had some spare time on my hands, and decided to check out some of the local parks and capture some images of birds and the great hiking trails and water scenes available.

Here are a couple of images from Lettuce Lake Park near Tampa. The wooden walkways allow you to get very close to the water – to see the animals and get up close to the Mangrove trees.

I plan to spend more time in Florida’s amazing parks, and do some hiking on the trails!
