I've been collecting seashells for as long as I can remember. From east to west, coast to coast, and shore to shore, I always find a treasure to keep, and adore.

Up Close and Personal

I've always been a real nature buff, have always loved animals, and I don't think I ever missed an episode of Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom.

I was going through some photos and found some we took on hubby's video camera a couple of years ago.

Some of Florida's Wild Kingdom!

I didn't do anything to these pics, and they are in the sequence they were taken.

These were taken on the Gulf Coast at Belleair Beach, and the Silver River just outside of Ocala.

I love my state!!!!!
We have our very own Wild Kingdom right here!

Fantastic pictures!! I really must let you take me out and about the next time I'm in FL so I can see more than an egret. LOL

Great pictures. I always love seeing the dolphins. I want to swim with one SO badly. Flipper was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid. I think I wanted to move to Florida because of that show!

Love them. I missed a great shot of a manatee the other night. I was so shocked that he was so close I forgot my camera was in my hand.

You definitely do have a wild kingdom there! Beautiful photos, and it is grate that you didn't do anything to the photos, they are alive this way. Thanks for a wild life walk! :)

These are great! I just love animal pics. That's why I carry my camera everywhere I go. I'd hate to miss a good shot of anything!

I've never had a desire to go to FL but all of your pictures and descriptions sort of make me want to take a trip.

Wow! The hair clips are really pretty, especially the cluster with the pearls! I LOVE the mesh bit in the necklaces. They are stunning! The wildlife photos are beautiful and look like home to me. Have you ever been to a Beall's? I used to work at one and they have a lot of sea shell items...Even jewelry. Well, I have never seen any as gorgeous as yours. You really have a gift for it.
