Pungo NC. Nothing going on here. Just a bear spooning his food. 😂 observation video: https://youtu.be/kjCpgfkDfqo A big male bear dragged a deer through a huge field and into the woods. Then dragged it back out into the field. He was exhausted and tired and HOT. So a lil spooning with his food took place all while another bear tried to invite himself to dinner. Made a video with clips from a few hours of observation. Felt the clips gave more life to the encounter. Hope you enjoy. Pocosin Lakes NC.

Our first Atlantic Coast Slimy Salamander found in the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge! Love this cute little guy. We were so lucky to find him. He was missing most of his tail, but it had already started growing back. #salamander #wildlifephotography #wildlife #slimysalamander #pocosinlakes #wildlife_seekers #amphibians #naturephotography #ncwildlife #ncnature #outerbanksnc #wildliferefuge

The first Blue Grosbeak I’ve had the chance to photograph. This gorgeous bird was feeding among the reeds in the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge. The Blue Grosbeak only ventures this far north during the warmer months of the year. #bluegrosbeak #beautiful #gorgeous #bird #birding #ornithology #birdsofinstagram #birdphotography #grosbeak #ncwildlife #ncnature #obx #outerbanks #outerbanksnc #tyrrellcountync #pocosinlakes #wildlifephotography #birds #cute #love #canon7d #blue #wildlife_perfection #wildlife #visitnc

I caught this bear sitting on its tush, raking lots of fresh, yummy greens into its mouth. Once I hit the shutter, it gave me a bewildered glance and was quickly off. Sorry, buddy! #joyfulimagesbyajs #ncwildlife #naturenc #pocosinlakes #wildliferefuge

It's been a hot minute or two! Here's a cute prothonotary warbler from this weekend for ya. So what's been going on lately? A little travel to NJ for my bday just after being hired as the state mammalogist with NCWRC, which I start in tomorrow. Getting ready for a move too! Also getting set to hire for my former position - looking for someone with substantial trapping and endangered species experience, so DM with recs!! It's been a busy month #joyfulimagesbyajs #pocosinlakes #wildlifebiologist #ncwildlife #naturenc

A big male seen at Pocosin Lakes this weekend. Black bears like to live in large expanses of uninhabited woodland or swampland with dense cover, so the swamps and pocosins of the North Carolina coast provide excellent habitat for them. 📷: @neiljernigan #naturenc #pocosinlakes #nc
