Wildlife Refuge Images

Posted by: Dan Carmichael on 06/06/2013 - 3:01 PM

If you have an image of wildlife, or a landscape, of an official wildlife refuge, post it.

Content is king! Be sure to post the name of the refuge and other relevant keywords so that when people search google on that subject, Fine Art America is brought up. Post a background story if you like, too.

Here's mine:

Outer Banks Pea Island Wildlife Refuge

Sunset At Pea Island Wildlife Refuge Outer Banks

Sunset at the wildlife refuge on Pea Island on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

This photo is of a stunning sunset at the Pea Island refuge on the Outer Banks.

Not seen in this picture taken in June is the horrendous amount of biting flies and mosquitoes. I was wearing deet at the time. It's often necessary on the Outer Banks. But the flying insects were so thick, they continually flew in front of the lens and I thought they were going to mess up the picture. These old trees contrasted with the brilliant Spring and Summer green of the bushes made for a fine sunset setting.

Here are some from the Wichita Mountains NWR in southern Oklahoma. Spectacular place. Buffalo (I know it's supposed to be bison but I can't bring myself to...), elk, wild longhorns, snakes, lots of birds. And mountain boomers (collared lizard for those who like less colorful names). It's the land of the Apache, Comanche, and Kiowa. Geronimo and Quanah Parker are buried nearby. Just a great place to visit.

The Lower Klamath Basin NWR is my favorite place to shoot wildlife. Especially in the winter when it is home to large numbers of bald eagles. Hawks and other raptors are plentiful, too, as well as tundra swans and snow geese.

The North Carolina Coastal Reserve & National Estuarine Research Reserve is a network of ten protected sites established for long-term research, education and stewardship. Located on the northern Outer Banks in Currituck (Corolla) North Carolina.

You can choose to hike along some great hiking trails or a boardwalk to the edge of Currituck Sound. Lots of old, beautiful live oak trees of all strange shapes. You can also spot some of the wild horses of Currituck in the reserve. Located just a stone spit distance up the road from the Corolla lighthouse.

A flock of birds fly alongside a double rainbow in the aftermath of a spring thunderstorm on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Taken on Pea Island, location of the wildlife refuge.

A sunny, peaceful and warm day on Pea Island on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Pea Island wildlife refuge includes open beach areas for nesting birds. No vehicles - and often no people - are allowed on some of the beaches.

This photograph is one of my favorites because is is very representative of the Outer Banks in North Carolina. A peaceful cloudy, yet sunny day. Beautiful sand dunes and sea oats. The sounds of breaking waves. Relaxing.
