Real Florida for Real Thanks Giving #RealFlorida #Nature #Photography

Fall colors in Florida are nothing like the fall colors I grew up with in New York, but after 30 years living here, I have to say it can get pretty colorful here.

More of “How I Spent My Thirtieth Wedding Anniversary” #bughunting #nature

Lest you think all we did for our thirtieth wedding anniversary was go for a fourteen-mile bike ride, here’s a continuation of the happy day. We went bug hunting.
