  • Photo and video by @carltonward | I set up one of my camera traps along this trail beside an ancient cypress tree for more than a year and only got two visits by a panther during that entire time, and only once facing my camera. As luck would have it, a Florida black bear knocked over two of flashes and bumped my trigger the week before. So this beautiful female panther is a bit more mysterious than I wanted: the bear knocked over the left flash, leaving the right side of her face dark. And she's a bit further from the camera than I'd like because the bear misaligned the trigger. But I am still quite happy with the moment, a gift of capturing a rare panther walking in the shadow of this 500-year-old cypress on Green Glades West ranch, next to Big Cypress National Preserve. The video gives a behind the scenes view of the curious cat.

  • Life is hard. Sometimes we get to a point in life where we get stuck. Not knowing what to do or the next road to take. We find ourselves with multiple paths in-front of us but we can’t see the obstacles we may face, how far the path is, and where it will take us next. You start down one path and you begin to question if you took the right one, or where those other paths may have taken you. Just know that you aren’t the only one. • check out some of my brothers awesome photos and edits he’s been doing in the southern Florida area @ambientfx

  • Today is Monday, so it's #zoodays time! This is Frosty Jr., a 19 year old Umbrella Cockatoo and my favorite bird that lives at @sarasotajunglegardens . We've been hanging out a lot lately and have become best buds. I love getting to see his.. uhhhh... unique personality. I'd describe it as equal parts crazy and charming, and this picture of him hanging out in the Victoria's Secret bag he got for enrichment is the perfect aesthetic for him. I love going over and having dance parties with him, one of my most prized possessions is a signed painting that he made, and it's also very rewarding for me to remind him that he has a bright yellow butt, because I honestly don't think he's that aware of it. Also, he does talk a little bit, and his favorite things to say are, "Hi Frosty!" and *maniacal laugh*. It's all very endearing.
.....
Umbrella Cockatoos are endemic to the tropical rainforests of Indonesia, but are unfortunately listed as an Endangered Species by CITES due to habitat destruction and overharvesting for the pet trade. Like many other parrots, they have zygodactyl feet (2 toes in the front and 2 in the back) that are excellent at grasping and manipulating objects, very strong beaks for being able to crack open seeds and nuts, and extremely loud calls to help them be able to communicate in the noisy jungles. They are also very important in the rainforest because they eat so much different fruit seeds and nuts that they actually spread a lot of the seeds around as they poop them out. Finally, these guys are extremely intelligent birds that ar great problem-solvers, are eager to learn, and are very social with other birds and their caretakers, which means getting to interact with Frosty here is always a treat.
