Life in the SoFlo

So my new job is in South Florida doing point counting work. There are three major areas, but we've been working in the pine rockland ecosystem of the Everglades lately.



This is what I have to commute through to get to work.



We have to start the counts right after dawn so we're there to see the sunrise every day...



There are some nasty plants out there, but some of them aren't so bad.







And of course, birds.





Red-bellied Woodpeckers are everywhere!


Loggerhead Shrikes are a lot more abundant here than in Georgia.



You also have to watch out for venomous snakes, like this cottonmouth...



...and ferocious Five-lined Skinks.

Those five-lined skinks are easy to catch, ut quick to bite!
