Scenes from Corkscrew

  I am linking up with Gemma's  Scenic Weekend 

 These are all scenes from our visit to the Audubon Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary near Naples, Florida. It is a beautiful place to visit, so lush and a beautiful habitat for the birds and critters.

You can see more of the birds from Corkscrew here:

They have 2.25 mile boardwalk perfect for seeing all the beautiful plants, trees and birds.


The plants growing out of the trees were pretty, some hard to photograph were rare orchids.




A grassy field, such a pretty bright green.


I love the spanish moss growing on the trees.


The swamp is a perfect habitat for all the different species of birds. If you are ever in the area I would highly recommend a visit to the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by to see my post and thanks to Gemma for hosting Scenic Weekends.

I wish everyone a safe and happy weekend.

  9. I'd love to visit something like that - nearest I've been I think was a heron sanctuary in New Zealand.

  15. It is certainly a lovely paradise to nature watch. Those scenes with mossy trees looks like something from Avatar, an eerie scene. But everything is so beautiful. thanks.
