Obscured and Smart I had a stare down with this buck that last well over 30 mins this morning. He would never put his head down or give me a chance to reposition myself for a better photo. We were less than 30 yards apart and I had caught him feeding. He knew something wasn’t right and went on the alert. Hopefully I’ll see him again... . . #staredown #big8 #8pt #holymolly #floridawhitetail #floridadeer #truewildflorida #canon80d #tamron70200g2 #spanishmoss #oldflorida #publicland #florida #visitflorida #myfwc #pureflorida #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #whitetaildeer #wilddeer #floridagrown #floridacracker #naturephotography #deer #ruttingbucks #floridatrail #floridawildlifecorridor #floridawildlifephotography #mycanonstory
Imagine yourself in the Florida Keys! 😎🌴 Have family and friends in town? Want to trade the hustle and bustle for a tropical paradise? Escape to the Sunshine State’s great outdoors for fun and relaxation this holiday season! Enjoy beautiful wildlife and scenery as you hike, bike, boat and fish on wildlife management areas like the Florida Keys Wildlife and Environmental Area. On the trail or the water, you may spot Key deer, Schaus swallowtail butterflies, roseate spoonbills, lower Keys Marsh rabbits and white-crowned pigeons. Take away memories but help us conserve wildlife and keep areas pristine by leaving nothing behind. #FLKeys #Florida #Friends #Family #Paradise #Hike #Bike #Boat #Fish #WMA #WMAzing #MyFWC #FWC
Following my footprints - Keep them close - Teach them right . . My youngest son has a great eye and strong interest for photography. Took him out for a look at some deer. We saw a bunch and had a very close encounter with a big buck, but alas he saw us first. . . . #getthemoutdoors #teachthemyoung #youthoutdoors #showthemtheway #realtreeoutdoors #mossyoak @bassproshops #bassproshop @myfwc #youthoutdoors #futurephotographer #wildlifephotography #hunting #woodsmanship #bushcraft #compass #deerhunting #floridaoutdoors #floridatrail #publicland #myfwc #canonphotography #wildlifephotography #conserveflorida #truewildflorida #manfrottomonopod @canonusa @sigmaglobalvision #sigma1835art #youthphotography #youthphotographer #canon80d #canon

Christmas cheer for the children ❤️🎅🏼💚Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way…Oh what fun it is to ride in an FWC “sleigh!” Our officers were proud to participate in the 11th annual Christmas with an Officer event hosted by the Flagler County Sherriff’s Office in partnership with Target. This is the seventh year our officers have taken children on a shopping spree to buy gifts for their families, friends and—of course—themselves! This year, our officers adopted 14 children. Maybe you can find a way to spread holiday joy, too! #Christmas #Holiday #Gifts #Officer #LawEnforcement #Joy #FlaglerCounty #Florida #Target #MyFWC #FWC #FWCOfficer FWC photos
Little blue eyes 👀💙 Did you know that bay scallops have many tiny, blue eyes lining the outer rim of the shells? These eyes help detect movement and serve as a warning system. We are gathering input on the bay scallop season structure for 2020 and beyond. Swipe up on our Instagram Story to participate in the online survey!

Give them direction and hope they find the right path - Took my oldest son out for a little trail time after the rain this evening. We discovered all kinds of things and even saw a big nice buck and several other deer. It was good to be out with him and passing down things my father taught me. .swipe left <~~~ . #getthemoutdoors #teachthemyoung #youthoutdoors #showthemtheway #realtreeoutdoors #mossyoak @cez_products @fieldlineproseries #hunting #woodsmanship #bushcraft #compass #deerhunting #floridaoutdoors #floridatrail #publicland #myfwc #canonphotography #wildlifephotography #conserveflorida #truewildflorida #manfrottomonopod @mossyoak @realtreeoutdoors

Why settle for a partridge in a pear tree when you can have an osprey on a lighthouse? 😉 I was photographing the lighthouse. I didn’t even realize the Osprey was there until I was home and going through my photos.

Hope for the blues! 🦋 Twenty years ago, the Miami blue butterfly had vanished and was thought to be extinct. So, when populations of this small butterfly were discovered in the Florida Keys in 1999 and 2006, biologists sprang into action! Swipe up on our Instagram Story to learn about efforts by the FWC and partners to help this endangered butterfly that once fluttered along coasts from Tampa Bay and Daytona Beach southward to the Dry Tortugas.

Nature isn’t always easy or pretty. This is a sad reminder of how hard survival can be. I found this beautiful Blue Crab washed up on the beach. It’s a good possibility he was a victim of the recent red tide. 😢 . 🦀 . #florida #floridalife #floridanative #survival #nature #hiking #outdoors #outdooradventures #donttakelifeforgranted #crab #bluecrab #redtide #beach #beaches #wildlife #photography #photographer #photo #photooftheday #photoart #art #artist #sealife #myfwc @myfwc #natgeo @natgeo

A whole lot of nesting going on 😃🐢👏🏼 It was a busy nesting season for sea turtles in 2018! See for yourself by checking out the our @fwcresearch “Index Nesting Beach Survey” summary of sea turtle nest numbers! We sincerely appreciate all the beachgoers who turned off lights and shared our beaches with sea turtles and hatchlings by giving them space during nesting season! Final statewide nesting totals will be released in 2019, so keep a lookout!

Juvenile bald eagle When Juvi's are sent away from their birth nests to start a life of their own, where do they go for support and more training skills? In my recent years of documentation and research, I have found just this magical place. A place where eagles that range from age 1 to 5 years share roosting sites, sunrise hunts, vulture exploits, assertion rights, and sunset tales. Every year new juvi's arrive and join the pack while the older sub adults move on to build nests, start families or fly off in search of a new life elsewhere. This young eagle is cruising into the forest to enjoy its little fish in solitude. _ _ _ _ Copyright 2018 MarcHarris/MarcHarrisWildlife. #elite_raptors #audubon #audubonsociety #conservation #natgeoyourshot #natgeo #natgeotravel #nationalwildlifefederation #wildlifephotography #baldeagles #myfwc #naturelovers #birdwatching #wildlifeplanet #eye_spy_birds #bb_of_ig #wildlife_inspired #wildplanetphotomag #yearofthebird #nikonnofilter #birdsofinstagram #nature_brilliance #everglades #marvelouz_animals #birdsofprey #environmentalist #igs_newtag #nuts_about_birds #wildflorida

It’s not only ugly... it’s illegal! Our public lands are beautiful and serve as habitats for many fish and wildlife. Unfortunately, ugly mounds of dumped trash are sometimes found in natural areas of our state. In this case, someone dumped old furniture and other refuse in Citrus Wildlife Management Area. Charges can range from a second degree misdemeanor to a third degree felony, and could result in fines and jail time. If you see someone dumping trash on any WMA in the state, please call our Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-3922 to report it. You could be eligible for a reward! FWC photo by Rick Spratt *Note: Citrus County residents may annually take up to 1,000 pounds of furniture and carpet to the county landfill free of charge. Check with your local landfill or recycling business so that you can dispose of appliances, furniture and other large garbage responsibly. #PublicLand #Fish #Wildlife #Trash #Dumped #CitrusWildlifeManagementArea #WMA #CitrusCounty #Florida #MyFWC #FWC
So it begins...the”Vlog” Haven’t quite figured how I want to approach this yet, but I thought I’d share this screenshot of a screenshot of a video clip from this morning. Thanks to Wildlife Photographer @mortenhilmer I have been inspired to give it a go. I’ll be putting the first video together tonight and will post a link. #wildlifephotography #floridawildlife #floridawildlifephotography #publicland #canonphotography #vlog #wildlifevlog #getoutdoors #beinspired #thisainteasy #myfwc #florida #americanwildlife #whitetaildeer #herewego #pilatedwoodpecker #canon80d #tamron70200g2 #canon #tamron #floridaexplored #truewildflorida #howtodoflorida #floridacrackerstyle #floridacracker

Have you seen me limpkin around? 😏 The limpkin is a long-legged species of waterbird named for its perceived limp when it walks. It inhabits shallows along rivers, streams, lakes, marshes and sloughs. In the United States, the limpkin is found only in Florida and its primary food source is the apple snail. Swipe up on our Instagram Story for a limpkin video! #Limpkin #Bird #WaterBird #BirdsofInstagram #Wildlife #Conservation #AppleSnail #MyFWC #FWC #Florida #Picoftheday #Photooftheday FWC photo

Question, what do Everglades snail kites eat????? Answer: look closely at the second picture! The photo was taken at Lake Toho in Osceola County. Update from UF: Black over red VR was banded at East Toho in May 2011. This one has been sighted numerous times by our crew as well and has been seen at Lake Hatchineha, Kissimmee River, Lake Cypress, East Toho, and Lake Toho.

“Hanging Out” // Florida Water Snake (Nerodia fasciata pictiventris)
Something fishy 🤔🐟 A routine fishing inspection reveals a total of 50 sheepshead… 42 were undersized. The inspection also found both undersized mangrove snapper and black drum. All of the illegally harvested fish were seized and the three violators were issued multiple citations. If you suspect a fishing, hunting or other wildlife violation, report it to us via our Wildlife Alert Hotline by calling 888-404-FWCC (3922), #FWC or #FWC on a cellphone, or texting/emailing Tip@MyFWC.com. #Fishing #Inspection #FWCOfficer #Officer #LawEnforcement #Snapper #BlackDrum #Fish #MyFWC #FWC #Wildlife #Conservation

The safest place to take a nap. 😉 American Alligator momma and one of her babies. It’s amazing how gentle these powerful creatures can be when it comes to their babies. 💕🐊 (My apologies for this not being better quality. This was so sweet I wanted to at least get the best picture I could.) Disclaimer: this pic was taken from a safe distance behind a wooden blind on the trail and I used a zoom lens. Never get too close to alligators as they are much faster than they look. Especially never get too close to a momma and her young. . 🐊 . #florida #floridanative #floridalife #floridagirl #nature #hiking #outdoors #outdooradventures #alligator #alligatorsofinstagram #reptile #reptilesofinstagram #baby #babyfever #photography #photographer #photo #photoart #art #artist #photooftheday #myfwc #natgeo #natgeowild @natgeo @natgeochannel @myfwc
