Cross is now 85 years old, but his love for birds came mid-life. He has had a long career in law and publishing -- and is an expert on economic development. But birds are his passion.

Great White by Larry Frogge

 I know the Brazilian Pepper Tree is the scourge of Florida, but the berries sure make for nice photos. This Great White Egret is enjoying a nice, relaxing morning siesta after a fishing trip.
Enjoy,

The Sherman's Fox Squirrel is a "Threatened Species" here in Florida. They are the largest of the squirrels in size and are quickly diminishing in numbers. They come in different colors, mostly like this one & black. They are very shy and elusive. I have been looking to get a good, clear shot of one for quite sometime. I finally got my chance with this one. However, there is a black one in the same area so I will have to go back. Maybe I'll take an extra nut (Charles!!) with me next time  :o)
Enjoy,
