Nature Photography and Wildlife Observation
Springs offer incredible opportunities for nature photography and wildlife observation.
The springs constant year-round temperature and stable water flow serve as a magnet and provide an ideal habitat for hundreds of species of native and migratory wildlife, including such unique animals as the bald eagle, river otter, and the manatee.
As a result, many springs parks and recreation areas offer an ideal location for wildlife observation and nature photography.
Of all of Florida's springs that offer visitors the opportunity to observe native wildlife up close, few are more famous than Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park, which allows visitors to see the manatee and an incredible variety of saltwater fish up close through one of the world's largest submerged, freshwater observatories.
