l have been a part of a few successful wildlife rescues and educate people on wildlife and environmental issues. We have helped in issues to save wetlands, woodlands etc.to save the precious life within. It is well worth the effort. We can all learn to live and work together. Education is the key. In 2011 I won an education award from Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority for the work and photography I do. Habitat is fast disappearing and with it, many species are also declining in numbers. So many species can actually tell us the health of our environment and alert us to problems we need to know about. They all need to be protected.

Fripp Island, South Carolina

                               A great place to go and get away from the busy world we live in.
  A small diamondback terrapin turtle becoming a meal. It was washed up with a high tide in the sea grasses. The chain of life.
                                                   An entrance into a home on the beach.
                            A river otter eating an oyster toadfish in the river by the condo
                                                         A nature area in high tide.
                                                              High tide hammock.
                                             An ambush bug all camouflaged up in lichens.
                                                  A beautiful little green anole lizard.
                     Up De Crick. A little strange for a name. Or is it!! Had to take this. Very cute.
      Hey bud,whatcha doin!!  Yellow bellied slider with a young alligator. Predator n prey side by side.
                      Marbled godwits after a nice ocean bath n preen go back to the tidal pool.
 This unfortunate crab was buried in the sand on low tide. As my sister and I were walking along and talking. I saw this sand covered thing move. It lifted it's arms towards us. Oh my ,it was a crab. Unfortunately was on its last legs of life. It had already been predated and had no face. Poor thing could still hear and reached out. Talk about an impact. Again it is life in the wild.
 Mother nature provides us with many amazing things. Here is the work of art from the tides. They are called sand braids. And are formed from the tides waters.  So incredible.

A pair of crows in a live oak tree. One actually had a mouse and it was part of a mating ritual I believe. A lot of calling took place to get the other mate to come in and then they danced around a bit and flew off with mouse together.
