Summer Snorkeling

This summer we explored three fresh water springs north of Orlando; Blue Springs, Silver Glen Springs and Alexander Springs.  They are a great place to go snorkeling and to spend the day hiking or a have picnic.  The water is nice and clear, although it's bit cool, usually around 72-74 degrees. Silver Glen and Alexander Springs both have nice swallow areas which are great for the small swimmers in the family.

Funky Flowers

I've been spending a lot of time with my Canon 100mm f2.8L Macro lens lately.  One of my focuses has been on flowers and recently I came across these funky looking ones called Pin Cushion Proteas.  Now these things are other worldly looking, especially up close, like the one below.

You can find this one and many more like it in my portfolio on Stocksy.
