Camera Critters – Black Point Wildlife Drive

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

Birds of Florida – Wild Bird Wednesday

One of the things I miss about living in Florida is the abundance of different wildlife. Here in Pennsylvania where I live, the wildlife is pretty basic. I need to go “into the woods” to find more exciting species. As I don’t have much time to get back to nature most of my photos are of the birds and squirrels that visit my patio!

As I just stumbled upon this meme, I am not prepared with any new photos, so I am going to take a trip back to one of our visits to Black Pointe Wildlife Refuge in Florida. This was about a 45 minute drive from our home and we visited quite often. It was a nice “Sunday drive”.

Sky Watch Friday – Merritt Island/Black Point Wildlife Dr

These three “Sky Watch” photos were taken on a day trip that Tara and I took to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and the Black Point Wildlife Drive. This Wildlife Refuge is in the shadows of Cape Canaveral just a few miles from the FL coast. It is a beautiful, serene area, where no matter what direction you look you can’t see a building. It has illusion of being much further away from civilization than you really are. We’ve been there a couple times when we did not encounter another human (lots of wildlife though!)

We were there mid-late afternoon in September, and a storm was moving in. I LOVE to watch the clouds and lightening associated with the sometimes severe storms we get here.

Here are three of my favorites as the storm moved in.
The first looks like the heavens are opening.
