Anhinga Trail

Everglades National Park, Florida

Here are 12 photos from the Anhinga Trail in Florida's Everglades National Park. The trail is 0.8 miles round-trip and offers outstanding views of the park's wildlife.

 

Note that these photos were taken with a compact camera without an unusually long zoom lens. Because the birds are accustomed to people, it's possible to get remarkably close. The photos of the alligators were shot from a boardwalk over the slough.
