Don’t forget to look for the little things in your backyard.  I bet you would be surprised at what is out there in the garden!  All of these creatures can be found outside the backdoor in Florida. 

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.

      Thanks! We really enjoy all the wildlife in this area – you just never know what you will see. There is one picture I really wish I had, but it happened so fast that it wasn’t possible. Shortly after we first moved in, we saw 2 sandhill cranes chasing a river otter across the lawn and right past our front door!

    Someday I’m going to invest in a micro lens. I really enjoy macros photography, and these are great.
