Finding a Bit of Nature in a Busy Metropolitan Area

Even in busy metropolitan areas you can often find a little bit of nature tucked away, out of sight. These shots where taken outside of Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida. Although I’ve been there many times, I didn’t notice the cool pond beyond the parking area until today. Given the 10-foot alligator sunning himself a few feet from my car, maybe I should start paying more attention.
