It is very sad to see this and i almost wouldn't post it; except, i'd like to encourage local fishermen not to leave footprints behind them. this is a mangrove island and the roots on this system are amazing which means the snook and redfish will be amazing also. i was here only a couple days ago which, which means it doesn't take long for this to happen. a pelican, likely a nesting momma, has gotten herself tangled and eventually hung herself in someones line left dangling from the branches. a good angler doesn't cast up into the mangrove. please, if you do get tangled... cut the line from the tree and pull it in. not to mention, there are #nationalwildliferefuge signs posted every 6 feet around this spot!! #publicserviceannouncement #psa #nationalwildliferefuge #pelican #keepfloridawild #doyourpart #floridaangler #fishinginflorida

On this amazing island of frigates, i spotted this solitary juvenile rosie toward the bottom of the mangrove. there did not appear to be other rosies on this island. the other island, where the rookery is, is not too far away. i couldnt help but wonder, "did she make it here by herself'? was this her first flight away from safety? would she return to the safety of where she was born and nurtured or was that it. it's official. she's flown the coup and on her own. #nationalwildliferefuge #juvenileroseattespoonbill #roseattespoonbill #birdsofinstagram #audubonsociety #ebird #birdinginflorida #floridabirds #floridanature #floridawildlife #nature #wildlife #wildflorida #cleargram #igersstpete #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #birdphotography #best_bird_shots #bb__of_ig #planetbirds #kings_birds #allmightybirds #nuts_about_birds #eye_spy_birds #birds_adored #birds_captures

I like to be as close to the water as i possibly can be; i like to be surrounded by blue skies, water and an occasional island or two!! #thatswhereyoullfindme #fromwhereiroam #lovefl #pureflorida #instagram_florida #cleargram #igersstpete #naturephotography #getoutdoors #fun_in_florida #skyporn #sunshineshere #liveamplified #roamflorida #hashtagflorida #florida_greatshots
