Naples, Florida - our very favourite place in the world. And a repeat visit back in 2016 offered more fabulous photo opportunities.
Firstly, some trademark Alligators, starting with a youngster
Then a larger specimen. I particularly liked this photo with the absolute mirror like reflection in the still water. Also the fact this guy is very relaxed given his trailing back leg.
And then a close up of the assassins smile!
A fine osprey graced us with it's presence right on the pier at Naples beach. This guy was very happy to hang around for a while and be photographed against the blue sky. In fact, he hung around for so long the clouds had arrived in the last photo. I like the last photo as there's a little bit of drama in the clouds which enhances the birds silhouette a little.
Lastly, for part 1 of this posting, we love taking a dolphin watching trip from Marco Island and it never fails to disappoint.
