    Last week I made a trip to the Okefenokee Swamp in South Georgia, USA. Here are a few photos.

    Sunset.

    I like this shot because of the reflection of the sun, you can also see my Guide standing steering the boat, in the alligator's eye.

    Not sure what kind of flower this is....

    [​IMG]

    River Otter.

    [​IMG]

    Another of many "Gators".

    [​IMG]

    Water Lily. Reflections of the surroundings in the swamp water were amazing.

    [​IMG]

    Stealthy Gator.

    Going through the swamp, small boat to get up close and personal with the Gators.

    Cruzin'........

    American White Ibis.

    Another sunset, the swamp would really come to life at night.

    Love them. I can't wait for my trip to Florida this winter so I can get some wildlife like that to shoot.

    What a nice set! All of your photos are great and I agree with most of the posters above... the best photo in this set is photo #1. I liked the reflection of the sun, sky, and trees on the water. Photo #2 gets a special remark for the sharpness of the details. It could have been better though if the green leaves at the bottom are not there.

    Cheers!

    We stay outside of Miami but take the boat down to Flamingo and launch into the Everglades from there.
