"Everglades - Paradise Found" an Exhibition by Jose F. Garcia at Everglades National Park

An art exhibit by Miami photographer Jose F. Garcia, titled "Everglades - Paradise Found," is on display at Everglades National Park through August 7, 2007.

Mr. Garcia specializes in breathtaking photography of wildlife, especially birds, and how they catch and deal with their prey. In his photographs, Mr. Garcia clearly captures the struggle and simplicity of finding a meal in nature! "It is a magical and unique place filled with beauty and wonderment. I came to it with no expectations and a clear mind, hoping that it will embrace me as I do it, and in the process reveal it self to me. My approach to work in this wonderful place is to forget about everything, in order to fully experience a sense of oneness. Through these images, I hope to share with you my Everglades - paradise found," says Mr. Garcia.
