The Everglades are a unique and fascinating habitat. Christine and I have returned to one specific part of the Everglades several times in the past 2,5 years: The Fakahatchee Strand Preserve and State Park.
It is one of the largest forested swamps in the US and it is teeming with wildlife both on land and in the water. We documented quite a few aspects of this unique ecosystem: from its forests to the swamps and sloughs with their reddish waters. We came across large gators in the water and venomous cottonmouths on land.
However, the most charismatic animal is the highly elusive and rare Florida panther! In collaboration with the staff of Fakahatchee and the Friends of Fakahatchee we setup DSLR camera traps to capture this cool predator with a wide-angle lens.
We will definitely return to that spot not too far in the future to further work on our portfolio.
In the meanwhile make sure to check the fresh images of black bear, possum, panther and many more in the new gallery:
