I took all these photo's with my trusty Minolta X700 SLR camera, & either my 300mm, or my 210mm zoom lenses using Kodak 200 ASA film. I then used a free token to have them put on photo CD, which saved me the effort of scanning them, & finally I used Adobe software to tidy them up. I own the copyright on everything on this page. If you want to copy for personal use that's fine with me, but I would apreciate an acknowledement, or link to my site in return.

The wildlife in Florida is very tame especially around town. Many of these pictures where taken in St Petersberg within a couple of blocks of the pier. We must have seen 30 species of birds there, plus wild dolphins, & rays. It is worth going down after dark as well as you can see night herons, & bats.
