Orlando Wetlands Park–Boardwalk

The new boardwalk at OWP

Orlando Wetlands Park has opened up a new boardwalk spanning the center of Lake Searcy; it passes very near the cypress swamp out in the middle where a lot of birds (especially roseate spoonbills) nest.  The boardwalk offers some really nice photo opportunities.

Of course there are still alligators around that like to hang out for photos

I’m also starting to practice with the camera lenses on my new phone as well as with a Nikon camera and zoom lens.  The fixed lenses on the phone do pretty well, but the digital zoom leaves a little to be desired.  The zoom lens on the regular camera does a nice job, but I think I’m gonna need some more practice with it.
