Twisted, creepy face frozen in an old tree trunk. The ocean has relentlessly pounded at the east side of Bulls Island in Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge, and has replaced what once was forest with gnarly, polished driftwood. No beach compares, and the entire island is one wild place with a good portion of the residents being alligators. Check out my website to read about this non-touristy adventure for your next visit to Charleston, South Carolina. #nationalwildliferefuge #beachcombing #justyourimagination #beachcomber #beach #whatdoyousee #seascape #instagramsc #atthebeach #facesinnature #facesinwood #beachvacation #southcarolinabeaches #beachstrolls #bestbeaches #findyourbeach #symbolism #picoftheday #wildlife #imagination #bullsisland #someoneiswatching #alligator #gators #whatisee #coastalnature #naturalpatterns #naturephotos #iseefaces #faceseverywhere @charlestonforlife @coastalexpeditions

You can’t stay mad at the weather when you come home to something as magical as this. West Virginia has stolen my heart. #canaanvalley #nationalwildliferefuge #usfws #rainbow #optoutside

A bird in hand is worth two in the bush.

Here's a Carolina Wren from late June. I found several nesting pairs while walking around, even got a good look at the babies in one that they had built in a hollowed out tree stump! . . . . #birding #birdstagram #birdsofinstagram #nationalwildliferefuge #audubon #audubonsociety #longisland

Good news on the #KempsRidley front: our nest on the Bon Secour #NationalWildlifeRefuge hatched this morning! Lots of hatchlings got to the water and hopefully at least 1 will come back in 10-12 years! We will be doing a nest excavation in 3 days to collect productivity data. Photos taken during research activities permitted the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and/or other comparable state or federal agencies. Please do not attempt to recreate the contents of these images without appropriate training and authorization. The first 2 photos are from today's hatch out. The last 2 are from hatch outs in 2016. All are Kemp's Ridley's. @mtrecgroup @conserveturtles @fsumarinelab #FSUResearch #EarthIsBlue #OurBluePlanet #ItsAmazingOutThere #OptOutside #ThinkBlue #OceanConservation #TurtleScience #TurtleNerds #FieldResearch #ResearchIsRough #ScienceIsBetterAtTheBeach #ConservationPhotography #Wildlife #NANPApix #WWFVoices #USFWS #USFWSNationalRefugeSystem #TeamCanon #CanonFanPhoto

Fantastic sunrise gravel ride! This is a great place to ride - nice roads, very polite traffic, amazing wildlife, and miles of gravel to travel. I pedaled just under 25 miles, but you could add lots more by using some nearby farm roads. . . #gravelgrinder #fromwhereiride #wymtm #bikelife #nationalwildliferefuge #garyfisher
