Growing Up at Corkscrew

The Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary has a new resident. He still needs to work on his dance moves but he is getting the hang of the bear tree!

The good news is that the baby bear is doing well. The bad news is that he is starting to play with my trail cameras!

With the rising water levels the young bear has moved to higher ground around the Fish Farm. The trail cameras are still irresistible.

Gator Nest

For several years I have tried to photograph the hatching of an alligator nest. Since predicting the hatching time is difficult and Moma gators are not fond of human company, this is best done with trail cameras. This year I have found two nests at the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.  The mother gators were not particularly thrilled with my offer to do their family portrait as you can see from the videos. The baby gators should be hatching out soon. Hopefully we will get some good pictures.  

The Bear Tree

There are at least three bear trees at the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary
