Hi there, we saw you over here and had to come say hello. What are you up to?
Well, this is one of my most favorite places in the city and I love coming here to photograph all of the birds and wildlife here in the park.

I love that, what are you shooting right now?
I have the camera set on a heron right now on that little island. There are some ibis around there as well. You can see it on the screen right here. I have some of the fountain in the background too, to show where we are. And the sky is beautiful tonight too. 

Do you live here in town?

No, I live in Oviedo, but I love coming here to take photos, it’s just so peaceful and beautiful, it’s a great place to be.
