The Anhinga Trail, Everglades National Park, Florida

The Anhinga Trail in Everglades National Park consists of a path along an elevated dike and a series of elevated boardwalks out over the marsh and ponds of the area. Many varieties of plant and animal life exist in the area especially in the dry season when the wildlife congregate around the deeper ponds.The closeness of the wildlife offers photographers plenty of things to point their cameras at. The most noticeable of the creatures that favour this location are the Black Vultures, the Alligators and the Anhinga themselves so I’ve posted separate blog entries on those three as photographed during this visit.
Black Vultures, Alligators, Anhingas

A number of wading birds were present in the area

The wading birds were often not far from the drifting alligators that might attempt to devour them.
