#Repost@carltonward ・・・Watch your back white egret, a great blue heron is gunning for you because it wants you out of its fishing hole. One of my favorite camera trap sites in the Fakahatchee Strand, where I am working to get photos and videos of bears and panthers crossing water, is also a favorite spot for wading birds. This can be frustrating because they trigger my cameras thousands of times and smoke the batteries, this time before a panther came. But the camera also documents some cool behavior in a very dynamic wetland. In this case, heron dominates egret. Now cue the panther please. #pathofthepanther#floridawild#floridawildlifecorridor#everglades#egret#heron#swamp#keepflwild@natgeoimagecollection

Awareness Wednesday! #Repost@carltonward • • • • • There is a saying that cats don't like water, but for the endangered Florida panther, the ability to live in flooded forests and wetlands has been a matter of survival. The Florida panther is the last puma surviving in the eastern United States, where the species was hunted or displaced from most of its range, except for the southern tip of Florida. Before roads and canals were built to cut and drain the land, the inhospitable, watery wilderness protected panthers from persecution by settlers who were moving south into the rest of the peninsula. The same difficult terrain also helped Seminole Indians endure three wars with US calvalry and remain unconquered. To show a panther walking in water, I set one of my camera traps — a studio in the woods — deep in the Fakahatchee Strand on a seasonally flooded trail. This is the same camera trap that photographed the great blue heron from my last post. Finally, after several months trying, a panther came through. Part of my #PathofthePanther project with @Natgeo, working to inspire the protection of the @FL_WildCorridor through the story of the endangered Florida panther. #FloridaWild#KeepFLWild#swamplife@myfwc@usfws#nature#floridapanther#panther#wildlife#wildlifephotography#wildlifeconservation#outdoors#outdoorsman#findyourself#alwaysoutdoors#visuals#aesthetics#earthpix#awesomeearth#landscapes#splendid_earth#natgeo#roamtheplanet#picoftheday#photooftheday#artofvisuals#ourplanetdaily#offtothewild#mericanbarbarian

What a beauty! Follow @carltonward to see more shots of Sassy, the Florida panther at @palmbeachzoo.#Repost@carltonward ・・・This week I had the privilege of photographing Sassy, an almost 4-year old Florida panther who lives at the Palm Beach Zoo. Her mother was killed by a car near Naples in 2014 and Sassy was the only of three kittens to survive. Biologists from @myfwc took her to @naples_zoo for immediate care in their animal hospital and she was later moved to the @palmbeachzoo for her permanent home where hundreds of thousands of visitors have a chance to see her each year. In addition to caring for injured and abandoned panthers, and giving homes to panthers that can’t be released to the wild, zoos serve an important role in educating the public about panthers and their conservation needs. Just a few minutes looking at this beautiful creature and anyone is going to fall in love. I’ve been chasing panthers in the wild with camera traps for 3 years and have seen two panthers in the wild with my own eyes. So I was mesmerized by the opportunity to observe Sassy in her large enclosure. Her grace, power and stealth was awe inspiring. At one point she jumped 10 feet down from a tree and landed on the ground right in front of me under full control without making a sound! Go see her yourself! Here a few photos from by visit with Sassy, all shot through the steel mesh of her habitat. Which is your favorite? Thanks @sonyalpha for loaning me a 400 2.8 lens that allowed me to produce wonderfully sharp photos with the foreground and background out of focus, and all handheld because the lens is so lightweight.

Such a close-up crocodile sighting on day one felt like a great omen for our adventure. South Florida is the only place where the ranges of American crocodiles and American alligators overlap. American crocodiles can be found throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, and South America, as far south as Venezuela and Peru. Alligators live throughout the southeastern United States. Crocodiles have a higher tolerance for saltwater and can live on marine islands with no freshwater. An easy way to recognize a crocodile is the shape of the snout, which is V-shaped compared to the U-shaped snout of an alligator. Crocodiles also show more teeth when their mouths are closed.

#Repost@carltonward ・・・This is a favorite photograph of an American alligator and one of my post popular art prints. It was also a lesson in light. Many people have asked me why the gator looks blue. The reason is the juxtaposition of warm and cool light. The sun had just dropped below the tree line and their entire surface of the pond was in cool shadow, making the gray gator appear blue, and even more so against the warm sunset rays that were catching the tops of the cypress trees and reflecting on the water. I was following the gator with a 600mm lens, waiting and hoping that he would swim through the bright and colorful reflection.

|Puma| Starting to build a deep appreciation for these big cats while working with @carltonward@torilinder@leyoho to help tell the story of #pathofthepanther#keepflwild. This shot was taken @saasa_jukani, a no-touch big cat sanctuary last summer. Still waiting to see my first Florida Panther, our state’s official animal and the last remnant subspecies of eastern cougar in the wild. The FL panther’s main challenge is urban sprawl and habitat fragmentation. According to @usfws it is estimated that only 5% of the Panther’s natural range across the South Eastern US is still intact. To learn more about these big cats and protecting Florida’s natural spaces have a look at @fl_wildcorridor OR pathofthepanther.org - - #bigcat#panther#pumaconservation#keepflwild#floridawildlifecorridor#southflorida#evergladesnationalpark#everglades#animalkingdom#bigcatsofinstagram#bigcatsinitiative#pathofthepanther#floridawild#wildlifeconservation

Florida Panther - 2.2.17 I was in South Florida to look for a panther. I did a little research, but there's also the element of being in the right place...at the right time. And listening to my lucky Wildlife spotting album also helped. However, I did not have the perfect camera or the right settings. So, this photo has been brightened to reveal that there really was a panther there :-) it was also quite late in the evening, probably only 15 minutes before sunset in a thick, swampy forested area. Follow folks like @carltonward And @torilinder to learn more about the great need for conservation in Florida!

I once envisioned the Everglades to be an ecosystem of desolation, hiding a slow-moving river underneath sedge and sun. Tucked away beneath the canopies of cypress and hardwood hammocks hide springs and creeks which are replenished daily; respites from the brutal sun I’ve always known. Some of these oasis have ancient owners. 🐊 Others are clear of muck and organic debris, possessing only lustrous coral sand beneath your feet. I feel a reverence when I wade in this water. It is truly paradise. #everglades#pahayokee#protectourparks#ovationofheart#pathofthepanther

Otra cigüeña me dio chance de tomarle una foto desde muy cerquita, antes de que emprendiese su vuelo.

I witnessed this moment at Buck Island Ranch, part of Archbold Biological Station, which directs research in order to better understand the intricacies of wildlife, water, cattle grazing, and carbon sequestration in the rangelands of the Northern Everglades. These lands are crucial to the Florida Wildlife Corridor and wide-ranging species such as the Florida panther. Shot during my #PathofthePanther storytelling project with @insidenatgeo.

Photo by @CarltonWard | Here’s a wet-season shot from one of my favorite camera-trap spots in the Florida Everglades. While I was aiming for a panther jumping over the water, this bobcat walking down the log was a beautiful consolation. I love seeing the different species of wildlife that rely on the same habitat. The goal of my #PathofthePanther project with @NatGeo is to use the story of the endangered Florida panther to inspire the land conservation needed to save the Florida Wildlife Corridor and keep the Everglades from being cut off by development from the rest of America.

@natgeo ""Photo by @CarltonWard | While cattle ranching can be a source of environmental problems, such as clearing rainforests and introducing cattle to lands never before grazed, ranching in Florida is a land-conservation solution. In a state with historic rangelands now under constant pressure from development that is converting 100,000 acres of agricultural and other land to rooftops and roads every year, the remaining farms and ranches protect green space essential for wide-ranging species, such as the Florida black bear and Florida panther, and vital habitat for dozens more. There is also growing recognition of the role ranches can serve in preserving and cleaning water for the Everglades and other watersheds that provide nearly all of the drinking water for Floridians. 4G Ranch, in Pasco County north of Tampa, is the site of an innovative public-private partnership where wetlands filter reclaimed urban water and recharge the underground aquifer at a rate of five million gallons per day.

This is one of a few projects I intend to devote some time to in the coming months. I’m not sure in what capacity, but it’s message is so important as my family lives in the middle of this destruction. We see it’s effects every day. 📸@carltonward Amazing photographs of the beauty of Florida. #floridawildlifecorridor#natgeo#pathofthepanther#keepfloridawild#everglades#gulfcoast#florida

Follow @untold_nature Photo by @CarltonWard | One cool thing about chasing panthers with camera traps is seeing all the other amazing wildlife that depend on the panther’s domain. This Osceola turkey skirts a seasonally flooded trail at Babcock Ranch Preserve in southwest Florida. One of six subspecies of turkeys in North America, the Osceola (named after the famous Seminole chief) is one of the most sought after by hunters. This gobbler has a distinct beard extending from its chest, a head with red tissue that swells during courtship displays, and iridescent feathers that shimmer in the daylight. #turkey#florida#pathofthepanther#floridawild#FloridaWildlifeCorridor#keepflwild#untold_nature

Reposted from @natgeo - Photo by @CarltonWard | A juvenile coyote trips a motion-sensing camera trap on a cattle ranch in the Florida Wildlife Corridor. Coyote populations have expanded throughout Florida in recent decades and are now present in every county. Eradication of wolves and clearing forests for agriculture in the eastern U.S. reduced competition for coyotes and created more of their preferred rangeland habitat, allowing eastward expansion from the Great Plains starting in the 1940s. Some people see coyotes as invasive pests threatening livestock and wild game, while others see them as beneficial—controlling rodent populations and filling the ecological niche of regionally extinct red wolves. Eastern coyotes are larger than their western counterparts, possibly due to hybridization with remnant red wolves. Florida panthers are known to prey on coyotes, and observations suggest that coyote populations have decreased in areas where the panther population has recently recovered. #PathofthePanther#Coyote#FloridaWildlifeCorridor#KeepFLWild@FL_WildCorridor - #regrann

Юныйкойот спотыкается о ловушку камеры на ранчо крупного рогатого скота во Флориде. За последние десятилетия популяции койотов увеличились по всей Флориде и теперь присутствуют в каждом графстве. Ликвидация волков и расчистка лесов для сельского хозяйства в восточной части США привели к снижению конкуренции за койотов и созданию большей части их среды обитания на пастбищных угодьях, что позволило экспансию на Великие равнины в восточном направлении, начиная с 1940-х годов. Некоторые люди видят койотов как инвазивных вредителей, угрожающих животноводству и диким диким животным, в то время как другие видят их как полезных: они контролируют популяции грызунов и заполняют экологическую нишу вымерших в регионе красных волков. Восточные койоты больше, чем их западные коллеги, возможно, из-за гибридизации с остаточными красными волками. Флоридские пантеры, как известно, охотятся на койотов, и наблюдения показывают, что популяции койотов сократились в районах, где популяция пантеры недавно возросла. #PathofthePanther#Coyote#FloridaWildlifeCorridor#KeepFLWild@FL_WildCorridor

There are four million acres of contiguous public conservation lands in the Everglades of South Florida. My current #PathofthePanther project with @NatGeo is focusing on the story of the panther to inspire protection of the @fl_wildcorridor so we can ensure that the Everglades doesn’t get cut off by development from the rest of America.
