But I made the time to get down to Florida while I could this week and I'm doing as much shooting as humanly possible in my four and a half days down here.
Yesterday we went to an amazing place called The Octogon. No, it has nothing to do with Mixed Martial Arts... but I'll talk about them later.
Today was Corkscrew Swamp. Corkscrew is part of the Everglades and is a pretty amazing place with wildlife unlike anything you get to see in the great 'wilderness' of Chicago.
So I'm going to start off with a few of the highlights from what I saw today.
|White Marked Tussock Moth Caterpilar (044 - 2012)|
|White-Tailed Deer (045 - 2012)|
|Eastern Lubber Grasshopper (046 - 2012)|
So there's three quick new species for this trip. I have oh so terribly many more pictures to sort, edit and post. This is barely even a drop in a bucket. But hey, I have to start somewhere!
