Wildlife reserves are not only vitally important for wildlife, but they're important for us! They are amazing places to view and photograph diverse wildlife, and where we can learn an appreciation for just what kind of gorgeous wild creatures we have living all around us. Here, a Mottled Duck, photographed at the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Reserve.
