Dominick Martino, 68, a volunteer photographer for Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park of four years, looks for wading birds to photograph at the Paynes Prairie observation deck on U.S. 441.

Martino, a former newspaper photographer, has photographs in the prairie's visitor center and currently has a small gallery at the Thomas Center.

"My job is to show people what can be seen out here," he said.
