Summer has come to an end and along with it ghost orchid blooming season in the Everglades. Since June I’ve made near weekly treks into swamps to visit blooming ghosts and service camera traps with precision laser triggers aiming close to blooms. The hope is to answer a mystery to science by capturing unprecedented photographs of a ghost orchid being pollinated. Notice the impressive length of the nectar spur — the thin tube extending from the back of the flower to the right in this photo. The giant sphinx moth is thought to be the only pollinator because it’s mouth parts are long enough to reach to the bottom of the nectar spur for the sweet reward that draws the moth deep enough into the flower to get pollen stuck on its head, or to share pollen already there from another ghost. Approximately 2000 ghost orchids exist in the wild, of which one in ten bloom each year and perhaps one in ten of those get pollinated — their only natural means of reproducing. It’s fair to say I’ve become obsessed with these ghosts — their mystery and the magic of the swamps in which they survive. For three summers I’ve been drawn deep into the orchids’ watery world and it takes the blooming season ending for me to move on to other work. Meanwhile my friend @macstonephoto is on a parallel quest to document pollination at @corkscrewswamp and his subject still has 5 active blooms. #chasingghosts #orchid #swamp #pathofthepanther #floridawildlifecorridor #floridawild #keepflwild @pureflorida #pureflorida

Serious swamp adventures. Courtesy of @carltonward and @torilinder, who track Florida panthers ( #pathofthepanther), ghost orchids, and all other variety of amazing/elusive creatures of the Everglades. That this is only a 2 hour drive from Miami will never fail to impress me!! May we never drain the swamp.

Flag under the Storm clouds. The wind blows hardest when storm is about to arrive they blow away every thing in there way.. then there is pin drop silence, birds hide in there dwellings and animals find shelter. Then there is big explosion and light of mighty thunder which is followed with down pouring of streams of water. Thats Storm you see in the Forest.

#Repost @natgeo ・・・ Photo by @CarltonWard | Meet the Florida panther — the last subspecies or puma remaining in the eastern US and Floridas state animal that shows us what we need to do to keep our state wild. This frame was captured on Babcock Ranch using a custom made camera trap. I’ve been working in this area for two years for my #pathofthepanther project with @NatGeo @myfwc @fl_wildcorridor and recently @nature_org. A male panther like this one has a home range of 200 square miles — and area so large that outside of Big Cypress National Preserve multiple properties are usually required to support a single panther. That makes panthers excellent ambassadors for protecting the statewide network of public and private lands that makeup #FloridaWildlifeCorridor. And if we don’t protect the Corridor, panthers will not have access to enough of their historic habitat to recover to sustainable numbers. But by investing in conservation in the Everglades Headwaters and beyond, we have a chance to restore panthers to their former range throughout the eastern US for the benefit of people and wildlife. #panther #floridawild #keepflwild #wildlifewednesday #floridawildlife #bigcats #nature #floridaeverglades

📷 by @ktbryden #Repost @carltonward ・・・The biggest benefit to chasing ghost orchids this summer has been spending a lot of time in the amazing flooded forests of the Fakahatchee Strand. I paddled into this pocket of watery wildness nearly weekly for the past three months to tend to camera traps pointed at ghost orchid blooms seeking to document the moths thought to pollinate the rare flowers. Thanks to @ktbryden for capturing this moment as we greeted the morning in a place that’s become a part of me over the past three years. And thanks to @warbonnetoutdoors for making the perfect jungle hammocks for this mission. With @torilinder. SUP by @yoloboard. Nimble paddle craft and bug proof hammocks open new possibilities for adventure in places with plenty of trees buy no dry land for miles. #swamp #chasingghosts #pathofthepanther @natgeo @insidenatgeo #Everglades #adventure #FloridaWild #KeepFLWild @fl_wildcorridor

Our Forrest’s our nature. #Repost @natgeo with @get_repost ・・・ Photo by @CarltonWard | Eglin Air Force Base protects the oldest longleaf pine trees remaining in Florida, and is the centerpiece of the longest corridor of longleaf pine forest left on the planet. Flying at sunrise, I had a goal of communicating the mystery and expanse of this under-appreciated habitat that is the fabric of the #FloridaWildlifeCorridor in north Florida. Mature longleaf pines develop charismatic flat-top canopies after 150-or-so years when they start putting more energy into growing out than up. There are trees on Eglin that are 500-years-old, pre-dating when Columbus arrived in the New World. Once covering 90 million acres of the southeastern United States, only three million acres of longleaf remain. Conservation groups are working to restore longleaf from Florida to Georgia, Alabama and beyond. The region is an inspiration and potential proving grounds for E.O. Wilson’s “Half Earth” vision.
