Nearly 100 species of mammals inhabit Florida and its surrounding waters. These are proving to be evasive to me but I'll be watching and waiting to find more

Dolphin Feeding Frenzy

This is what it looks like on the surface of the water when Dolphins work together to surround and ambush their prey.

Dolphin

There's not much better than having a Dolphin swim next to you while out in a boat on the Gulf of Mexico.

White-tailed Deer

This pair of White-tailed Deer were grazing in a back road area where I had never seen deer previously. It's near a gun club and is patrolled by police, one of which watched me looking at the deer, and slowed to a stop. I held my camera out the window which satisfied the police I wasn't going to harm the deer.

Being Watched

I had the feeling of being watched and turned to see that I certainly was.

Florida Panther

This is definitely the way I would like to see a Florida Panther in the wild, walking away.

Young Raccoon

This Young Raccoon was too busy searching for food to even notice me only a few feet away.

Marsh Rabbit

I was surprised to learn that the Marsh Rabbit, unlike the Eastern Cottontail is a strong swimmer that lives near wetlands where they eat on a variety of plants.

River Otter

It took some patience to get this photo of a River Otter. as it repeatedly ducked back underwater only to pop up nearby again, over and over until I got this taken. These cute and playful mammals aren't as they appear, they can be aggressive when threatened and should always be given plenty of space. They eat primarily fish but sometimes hunt ducklings and snakes to supplement their usual diet.

Florida Panther

The Florida Panther population once dropped to below two dozen and has rebounded to somewhere in the range of 150 to 200. Obviously these majestic animals are critically endangered.
