Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park

Here are some nice pictures taken in the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park by Sandra Friend, author of 23 books and creator of Florida Hikes Blog and Botannical Florida

For those unfamilar with the Fakahatchee Strand, it's located in Collier County near Copeland and Immokalee.  The park is home to many exotic flora including the famed Ghost Orchid. Well known Florida Photographer, Clyde Butcher, has a large collection of photos taken in the park. We were lucky enough to see some of them this winter during an exhibit at the South Florida Museum in Bradenton, FL.

They don't compare to Mr. Butcher's photos (and they are from a different location), but here are a few photos I took during a visit to nearby Corkscrew Swamp earlier this year.

You can see some of my other photos at Florida Nature Photo Blog.
