Scenes from the Beach

At the annual Florida’s Birding and Photo Fest — Our field experience group met at Anastasia State Park near St. Augustine at 0615. The park rangers drove us out and on to the beach to photograph for the next 4 hours. Driving on the beach was so cool! Kevin Karlson, a noted bird expert, was our leader.
