All Up In Nature, Searching For Inspiration

Photobucket

Yesterday Bre and I went for a 15 mile bike ride through Shark Valley in the everglades and had a BLAST. It was full of wildlife, and was a great chance for us to try out our new Nikon camera. We probably saw 200 alligators, most of whom were sun bathing right up on the bike trail. it was a fantastically inspiring day and I think all artists and nature lovers should make it out here!

Here are some babies we found, their mother was near-by so we needed to be really careful.....
