The vast majority of Biscayne National Park is underwater. Since Grandma Joy doesn’t swim, we opted to spend most of our day on a tour of Boca Chita Key. “Each guided tour lasts approximately three hours and includes opportunities to explore and learn about popular and scenic Boca Chita Key and Biscayne Bay. Climb the lighthouse (must be at least 42″ tall), explore the island, and hike the trail (mosquitoes are prevalent on the trails in the summer). Staff engage you with the history of the park and why mangroves, seagrasses, and hardbottom habitiats are all vital to the health of the local ecosystems. We want to share all the beauty this area has to offer and show how we can be good stewards of the National Park, preserving its unique habitats for generations to come.” Learn more: https://www.biscaynenationalparkinstitute.org/island-experiences/boca-chita-island-experience/ #GrandmaJoysRoadTrip #biscaynebay #biscayne #biscaynenationalpark #usnationalparks #nationalparks #nationalparklife #nationalparkphotography #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #exploreflorida #BocaChita #BocaChitaKey #optoutside #getoutside #marineecosystem #marineecology

The Loggerhead Shrike (Lanius ludovicianus) is a predatory songbird and the only member of the shrike family endemic to North America. Shrikes have a notoriety for impaling their prey on thorns and barbed wire. . . . . #loggerheadshrike #shrike #birdsofinstagram #birdsofflorida #birds #birdwatching #birdsofprey #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #wildlife_vision #wildflorida #floridawildlife #floridawild #exploreflorida #natgeowild #natgeo100contest #natgeoyourshot #bestofthesunshinestate_nature #bestbirds #bestwildlife #bestofthesunshinestate

Exploring Florida has been one of my favorite things since we moved here. Within an hour drive there are so many cool things. This is from our trip to #BlueSprings earlier in the year. I’m dying to go back now that it’s warm enough to go swimming. . . . #exploreflorida #springsofflorida #StatePark

Wynwood part 2: If you love street art and you go to Miami, you should definitely have a stop in Wynwood.

The locals are pretty intimidating 🦀 . . . Fun Fact: the Blue Land Crab, Cardisoma guanhumi, is a slow-growing species compared to most other crabs. It requires more than 60 molts – roughly three times more than other species of crab – to reach its full size. The crab will generally seal the exit to its burrow using mud, 6–10 days before it molts, in order to protect itself from predators. 🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀 #wildlifewednesday #funfacts

Take me back to my happy place. Truth be told, summer is actually a horrible time to go to the beach in Florida, IMHO. You're dealing with the brutal sun, the humidity and the bugs. My advice? Go in the shoulder seasons like October and April when beaches are empty. Both before and after the Snowbirds have come and gone. #natgeoyourshot #islandlife #floridalife #beautiful #visitflorida #landscapephoto #nature #natgeotravel #travel #ig_travel #fl_igers #tampa #ocean #landscapephotography #earthpix #landscapelover #ourplanetdaily #agameoftones #ig_shotz #ig_myshot #getlost #ig_travel #travelgram #natgeohub #nakedplanet #mytravelgram #getlost #moodygram #exploreflorida #loveFL

Just off of 8th street along the shore of Florida's South Beach is a colorful half sun shaped lifeguard station. The bold colors of red, orange, and yellows of the lifeguard station in this photograph invokes the imagery of a sun shining in the blue sky.

Happy #worldsnakeday ! Along with being my favorite animals on the planet, snakes are some of the most beneficial and important players in every food chain and ecosystem that they occur in. They are far too often disrespected, maligned and slaughtered out of fear and ignorance. Our own states had put effort into killing venomous snakes in the past to the point where local bounties could be collected on the heads of rattlesnakes and other venomous species. Rattlesnake roundups regularly occurred on the east coast with timber rattlesnakes and eastern diamondbacks until they began to disappear from areas where they were previously abundant. This disruption of a delicate food chain has a slew of consequences that are often unforeseen but severe. Incident of death by snakebite in developed countries has dropped tremendously in the past century, and in countries like the U.S. and Australia only roughly 3-5 people a year die of venomous snake bite, typically due to not seeking treatment in a timely manner/failure to administer antivenom on time. In any case, venomous snakes will not “attack,” and every snake, given the opportunity to escape, will take it over biting or standing their ground. There is never a good reason to try and kill a venomous snake, even if it’s in your yard. You’re putting your own life at risk by trying to kill the animal, and you’re giving it a reason to have to defend itself. Fear of snakes can be mitigated by educating people, and helping them understand that these reptiles are more beneficial than they are fearsome. Events such as the Sweetwater Rattlesnake Roundup are nothing but detrimental, and encourage the mindless slaughter and hatred of animals that simply don’t deserve it. Although penalties regarding the killing of snakes often go unenforced, many states are getting better about fining and punishing those who mindlessly harm these animals. We have to respect the world around us if we intend to keep living in it • Except for the invasive Burmese pythons in Florida. Those gotta go 😅

Occasionally, we’re treated to the special sight of one of these guys diving feet first into the water, going after a meal. With an outer toe that is reversible and a wingspan of up to 72 inches, an Osprey can get catch some BIG fish!
