SOUTH FLORIDA

I went to Punta Gorda for a couple of days.  Stopped to photograph some Whooping Cranes near Lake Wales on the way down.  Visited Babcock/Webb Wildlife Management Area when I was down there.  Came back through the middle of the state and picked up a couple of Crested Caracaras.

SUPER MOON

We had a nice clear sky in Florida and we were on the edge of the lunar eclipse.  These photos were hand held with an effective 35mm focal length of 630mm with about a 50% crop.
