Florida Nature Photography:
Capturing the Raw Beauty of the Wild Side of Florida!

Florida nature photography. The mysterious, distinctive and unusual Florida landscape, along with the native wildlife and birds, are subjects for many professional and amateur Florida photographers.

The state of Florida in all it's glory, is an inspiration to photographers and artists alike, who choose to recreate it's beauty with their art!

The extraordinary landscape of Florida, in all it's splendor, is a very diversified one. Florida's landscapes include of course, the beaches, forests, lakes and rivers, inland terrain and the well-known Florida Everglades....fine subjects for photographers!

Besides the numerous animals, birds, reptiles etc., an intriguing subject of the photographers, are

the 50+ animals and 50+ plant species which are endangered, in the state of Florida. Many of the nature photographers in Florida have been able to capture images of these rare finds.

The American alligator, whooping crane, American crocodile, bald eagle, West Indian Manatee, Florida Panther, loggerhead turtle are just a few of the more 'familiar' species which are endangered, in the state of Florida. A great deal of patience, time and skill is required by the photographer to capture photos of these creatures!

Many of the nature photographers of the state have adopted the philosophy, that their work will be an inspiration to others, and will help to educate people, by sharing the natural beauty and charm of Florida, in hope of retaining the glorious Florida landscape and it's wildlife, as well as rebuilding it.
