Excited to have my photographs featured alongside @carltonward and other talented photographers in the 2019 Florida Ranches calendar! Florida cowboys are some of the most dedicated conservationists I’ve ever met. Cattle ranches and other agricultural lands in Florida make up a large part of the @fl_wildcorridor, providing critical connection points for our native wildlife to travel between protected lands. Support Florida ranch lands and help #keepflwild!

"But there are times when a tree can no longer withstand the pain inflicted on it, and the wind will take pity on that tree and topple it over in a mighty storm. All the other trees who witnessed the evil look down upon the fallen tree with envy. They pray for the day when a wind will end their suffering." -Julius Lester

Alyssa was on her best behavior as Dr. Genny Dumonceaux and April Winters were checking on her baby’s progress. Look at how relaxed she is! Remember, Alyssa was completely conscious during the entire exam. A few scratches and rubs in the right places act as a drug-free sedative. As you can hear in the video, the baby Tapir is becoming quite active. It won’t be long now!

...I am excited and honored to announce that I have been chosen as the Artist in Residence for the NPS - Big Cypress National Preserve! 🙂 I will be spending three weeks in January 2019 exploring and photographing the incredible flora and fauna of this diverse landscape that created the nation's first National Preserve.

Nature isn't always pretty sunsets and fields of flowers... There is a whole complex food chain that must go round and round that typically goes unnoticed by the human eye. This committee of turkey buzzards (yes, that's what a group is called) were waiting for the right timing to start their important role of feasting on the festering!

My beautiful loggerhead shrike (aka the butcher bird), has been hanging around lately. They get their nickname from the way they will impale prey on sharp objects and rip them apart......like a "butcher." .

Sunrise reflections in the California Swamp. Work has been taking a lot out of me lately, I hope it pays off. #dixiemainline #lowersuwanneenationalwildliferefuge #roamflorida #keepflwild #lovefl

Team #pathofthepanther shared the wonders of the Greater Everglades with students from #natgeounivmiami as we explored panther habitat and a working cattle ranch. We’re trained to fear the swamp but after a few minutes in blackwater it’s easy to see there’s nothing to be afraid of.... Well aside from sticks, obviously. 🐊 .

Replaced the Dwarf Cypress Prairies for Red Mangrove ones. As you reach the waters of Florida Bay, stop by and see these singular mangroves before entering the mangrove forests.
