The history of the Florida Keys is rich with tales of savage natives, pirates, shipwreck survivors, isolated settlers, and bridge builders who linked this chain of islands with the mainland. My interest in the Keys is the wonderful migratory seabird photography. Winter months are a great time to photograph south Florida. By driving back roads to remote coves, walking white sand beaches and hiking through dense forests of tropical foliage, you can discover more than the usual attractions along a four-lane highway. Photograph shore birds, endangered crocodiles, sea turtles, and great sunsets.
