Welcome to Zinnysworld.  Featured on these pages are images of fauna and flora common to Florida. Occasionally, there will be images from other states or countries that I have traveled to. On the Field Trips pages you will find summaries of recent field trips, along with some images, that I have taken either by myself or with other groups, such the Peace River Audubon Society, Florida Native Plant Society or the Photo Adventures Camera Club.

The Gallery pages contain images of birds, insects, mammals, reptiles, wild flowers, and trees found throughout the state of Florida.  Links to various Audubon web sites, birding sites and sites to find information on birds, insects and plants are found on the Links page.  A list of books on the fauna and flora of Florida and the rest of the United States are found on the References page.

Recently, I had my first book published.  The title is “Portraits of Florida Wildlife.”  It is styled as a coffee-table type book.  More information about this book can be found on the About Me page.

The above image shows a Ambush Bug.  I found it resting on one of the plants in my yard and was able to obtain some nice close-up images  This photo was taken in the morning on June 28, 2020.  Click here for more information on this insect. I’ve been spending quite a bit of time photographing bugs and flowers in and around my yard in Deep Creek (Charlotte County) during the pandemic lockdown.
