Camera Critters – Black Point Wildlife Drive

Taking a journey back in time! Florida has way more interesting critters than PA!

Never insult an alligator until after you have crossed the river.
Patience young grasshopper!

Camera Critters #56 – White Peacock

Camera Critters
Stop on by Camera Critters to see other submissions for this week!

I took this photo three years ago when Tara and I visited Busch Gardens. I had never before in my life seen a white peacock. It was truly stunning.

Busch Gardens is about 2 hours for us, but we have not been back since (even though it is part of our Sea World annual pass). To really make a day out of it makes it a bit too long for our dogs to go without being let out! We hope to get there sometime before we leave Florida in 5 weeks!

In keeping with the Easter weekend theme, I thought I would share this shot of a rabbit I stalked at Epcot during the 2007 Flower and Garden Expo. He was playing in the flowers, and I watched and waited until he came out for a rest!

Have a great weekend!

Camera Critters – Blue Striped Ribbon Snake

Camera Critters 1st Anniversary
This week is the 1st Anniversary for Camera Critters. Why don’t you stop by and share your favorite “Critter” pic. Every week there are some great ones!

We encountered this little “fellow” on our drive through Tosohatchee Wildlife Management Area on Thursday. I almost ran over him, but realized just before I got to it that it was a snake in the “road”. I am not a fan of snakes, but I would not want to kill one in the wild (i.e. not in my YARD) unnecessarily. I stopped the car, opened the door and took a few pics. We didn’t have a plan to go there, and I only had on flip flops, so we really didn’t get out of the car, except to shoot a couple flowers near the side of the “road”.

I did not know what type of snake it was, so I googled “Florida Snakes” and found that he is a “Blue Striped Ribbon” snake.
