Florida Scrub is dotted with snags like this one that provide places for birds to perch and view the surrounding area. In the morning and evening areas like this become active with birds. Image captured at Oscar Scherer State Park, Florida, USA.
This image was captured while visiting Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, Tropical Conservatory, Sarasota, Florida in August of 2016. The bloom lasts about 24 hours, so thanks to the FaceBook page for the gardens we were able to arrive at the gardens about two hours from the posting time. Because this is such an unusual event the gardens stayed open until 9:00 instead of closing at its normal time of 5:00.
Walking the trails in the evening while visiting Oscar Scherer State Park, I happened upon this Nighthawk sitting on a wire. He was willing to pose for a nice image showing his wings and coloration.

I was out walking a trail, very early in the morning when I captured this image. There was a light fog on scrub that gave it a mystical appearance that I tried to capture in this image at Oscar Scherer State Park, Florida, USA. I posted two images, one with a frame and one without a frame for your review.
