Baby Gator at Shark Valley in Everglades National Park, Florida

It’s nearly spring in the Everglades meaning baby animals are abundant. In addition to seeing young alligators we spotted juvenile Anhinga during the weekend visit to Shark Valley in Everglades National Park, Florida. Anhinga are also called Snakebird and I wouldn’t say the pink, bald baby birds we saw were cute but will say they were endearing as my parents and I watched them call out and nuzzle to their mother from their nest.

Enjoy these portraits of mother and children.
