SUMMIT COUNTY — As I’ve said before, I’m not really a wildlife photographer, but every now and then I get lucky and end up in a spot where I can use my other basic photography skills to capture some halfway decent images. Florida is great place for wannabe bird photographers, because the birds swoop low and close to the beaches, or run through the surf just a few feet away. Here are some of the best bird shots from my recent trip to the Florida Gulf Coast.
