The Golden Silk Spider, Nephila clavipes, hoping to catch a meal in #beautifulfla , is relatively common in #florida and throughout the Southeast, it is a relatively large spider but still harmless to people. It is an orb weaving spider with orange and brown coloration and hairy tufts on its legs. Hikers dislike inadvertently walking into their spider webs. #fl #boyntonbeach

The Publix weekly whole sub special, chicken tenders with buffalo sauce. Been told that it might be one of the signature foods of #florida #FL and while I am not sure whether that is true, it’s not a bad way to do dinner on a rainy day in #beautifulfla #publix (at Publix)

Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge








Young alligator sizing me up

Alligator looking at me.

Two turtles basking in the algae infested water

I think I hear a woodpecker!

There's a woodpecker!

This pileated woodpecker looks like he could get the shock of his life at any moment.





An egret stalks its prey




Arthur R. Marshall is a former U.S. Fish and Wildlife employee who devoted his life to the protection and enhacement of the natural resources and environment of Florida. He had a vision to restore the wetlands associated with the Everglades, in particular the cypress forest. Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge would acquire Arthur's name in 1985. This 145,800 acre refuge is currently all that is left of the magnificent and unique northern Everglades. It is currently managed by the Fish and Wildlife Service, US Department of the Interior through a license agreement with the South Florida Water Management District. The refuge consists of a mosaic of habitat types including sloughs, wet prairies, sawgrass, tree islands and cypress swamps.
