If you live in Florida, you soon learn that you must share your state with the Wildlife. Our temperate climate makes our panhandle and peninsula optimal habitats for a whole lot of CRITTERS!
We (Suzanne and I) live in North Central Florida. About 60 miles SW of Jacksonville and 25 miles W of St. Augustine. My drive to St. Augustine takes me through potato and cabbage fields and the Ocala National Forest is just 10 miles S of Palatka. So you are getting an idea of how, from time to time, we come in contact with Wildlife.
We live very near the St. Johns River and on several occasions we have discovered Alligators in the neighborhood.
In the fall, Banana Spiders spin their webs everywhere. Since we begin having foggy mornings in the fall, the Banana Spider's webs will glisten in the mist and are really quite beautiful to see.
I hope you've enjoyed a little taste of Florida Wildlife. I love living here and for the most part I enjoy my encounters with the Wildlife.........however, I don't do Snakes.
Stay tuned for some more Weekend Whimsies: Life in Florida
Have a Great Weekend!
