In my previous post about my visit to Green Cay Nature Center and Wetlands, I bemoaned not having with me a long enough lens for wildlife photography. I found a solution the next day: go to a smaller nature preserve where I’d be closer to the animals. The Wakodahatchee Wetlands, also in Palm Beach County, is an older and smaller nature preserve, and I liked it even better than Green Cay. The smaller size lends a more intimate feel, the flora is more lush, and there were far more animals (including an alligator), though that could have been due to the time of day and/or the weather. There was one very friendly bird you’ll see below that perched on the walkway railing and let passersby touch it.
