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.

As the weather is warming, I’m not missing winter (like, at all). However, being able to photograph these beautiful Tundra Swans this past January definitely made winter much more enjoyable! This was an icy takeoff for these beauties at Pocosin Lakes Wildlife Refuge, Pungo Unit. . . . #tundraswan #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nikon #nikonphotographer #nikonphotography #wildlifeconservation #wildlife_photography #naturalnorthcarolina #pocosinlakesnationalwildliferefuge #visitnc #naturephotography #ig_naturelovers #belhavennc #ncwildlife #outaboutnc #ncweekend #homenc #migratorybirds #shannoncoxphotography #ig_masterpiece #winter

Last nights crescent waxing moon. I shot this in Pettigrew State Park. Pettigrew and the general Pocosin Lakes Wildlife Refuge are a "dark sky" area in eastern NC. The stars are incredible. The sky is actually black. In addition, eagles, osprey, tundra swans, snow geese, otters, and many deer and black bears are a viewing possibility. #pettigrewstatepark #pocosinlakesnationalwildliferefuge #nikonp900 #crescentmoon

So, who’s ready to go on an adventure around town? This beautiful pup is always up for an outing. Whether we are swimming, fishing, throwing a tennis ball, watching birds or just hanging out, this sweet soul is near by and just like family! #homenc #pbs #storytelling #belhaven #nc #belhavennc #easternnc #labrador #labsofinsta #blacklab #lab #labsofinstagram #labradors #pocosinlakesnationalwildliferefuge #labradorretriever #shannoncoxphoto

A beautiful female Belted Kingfisher perched on a limb, calling. The Belted Kingfisher shows sexual dimorphism which means that the female and male have different appearances. The chestnut brown band across the chest means that this bird is a female. The male is smaller on average and lacks the brown band. #visitnc #ncwildlife #ncnature #outerbanks #obx #northcarolina #wildlifephotography #wildlifephoto #wildlifeonearth #wildlife #wildlifelover #bird #birdstagram #birds #birdlovers #birdwatching #birdwatcher #kingfisher #nature #nature_brilliance #naturephotography #naturelovers #winter #pocosinlakesnationalwildliferefuge #beautiful #bueaty #birding #waterbirds #wow

An immature Double-crested Cormorant perched over the black waters of the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge. These birds are numerous on inland and coastal bodies of water. “Double-crested” relates to small tuffs of feathers that form over each eye during breeding season. #visitnc #ncwildlife #ncnature #obx #outerbanks #northcarolina #pocosinlakesnationalwildliferefuge #cormorant #bird #birds #birdsofinstagram #birdlovers #wildlifephoto #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wildlifeonearth #wildlifepics #wildlifelover #wild #nature #nature_brilliance #naturephotography #naturelovers #natureshot #naturepics #birding #birdstagram #waterbirds #canonphotography
