Lake Jesup is north of Orlando just south of the Sanford International Airport.

This site is worth a visit if you are in the area. On the day Telephoto Florida visited the trails were closed due to flooding caused by the June rains.  Nevertheless, the boat launch area yielded vultures, gallinules, swallows, egrets, herons, doves, limpkin, grackles and osprey. On the road in to the park, a hawk was drying off from the rain.

The wooded area had some interesting shaped live oak trees from which woodpeckers and cardinals could be heard.
