i would love to use your image of hypoluxo coastal scrub in a presentation on The Nature Conservancy’s work to protect birds at the Treasure Coast Birding Festival . may i?
Absolutely! I’m honored to have one of my images assist in such conservation and protection work — it’s why I began this blog in the first place.
I would only ask that image credit is given to SerenitySpell.com and Christina Chappell at some juncture. I would love to see the presentation when it’s done (out of my own curiosity and personal interest) — would that be possible?
Go Christina! I love it when people stand up for what they believe in. Your cause is a great one! 🙂
THANK you!! For the sake of all of us, truly. ♥✿♥
That is so true. Likewise with the equatorial rain forests. I hope we stop the destruction and do whatever restoration we can soon enough. Nature feels so timeless! 🙂
What an impressive blog! Well done and great pics.
We are building a radio station in the New Orleans area and would like to have a picture of a white egret. Yours is the most pristine I have been able to find. Would you give us permission to use it as long as your copyright symbol remains on the picture? It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you sincerely.
Thank you so very much for your kind words! I’d be honored to contribute to such a project… I actually have several new images of breeding white egrets to upload soon, so it’s great timing you ask this.
I’m not sure what particular egret you have in mind, but I’ve updated the copyright symbol (from the plain text), so I can tweak and upload it for you ASAP, should you wish — just so it looks a bit nicer for your site. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or just reply here, if that sounds good to you — it would be a very easy thing for me to do.

How are you???
I do so miss hearing from and about you!!!!!
I’m here I’m here! 🙂 I’m trying desperately to return to a regular schedule, for happiness and sanity. Always a nice combination, yes? After this, I’m on my way to investigate ALL of your posts! 🙂
I keep checking to be sure you are ok!!!!
Hee, you’re the sweetest. 🙂 I swear, I’m doing a blog post tonight / this weekend… I KNOW you’ll love it! Well, appreciate it — how’s that?
Love it !!!!
Be well ,be safe~
Wrote an Essay~ on the US Gov web site today about the Manatees losing their protection!!
Makes me sick and furious!
Comments end on Tuesday.
OH wonderful!! I’m sorry I’m only just now seeing this! Do you have the link? I’m so sorry I’m a bit behind, poo!
The time is over to comment, sorry.
Totally love your magnificent work as it is some of the finest on the internet. Thanks for having me along for the ride. Always looking forward to more from you! Enjoy a splendid Holiday season. with love, Eddie
You’re so very kind Eddie — THANK you!! And you’re providing me with inspiration to finally set aside some more time to do what brings me great joy (this blog!), so I thank you all the more for that. Much love and peace to you with this beautiful new year! 🙂
I am a painter and live on a lake that is home to many of the beautiful blue herons. I do paintings of them and love your photos, could I make a painting inspired from one of your photos as long as I give you credit as the source for my painting inspiration. I am an amateur painter not a fine arts painter.
Hi Judy — Many thanks for your kind words! Absolutely, please feel free to use any image for your painterly inspiration. I would dearly love to see the final product — it would be great to see them side-by-side! 🙂
Thanks. If I could send attachments I’d send a picture of my painting.
Feel free to email me at: email@example.com — I know attaching to the blog isn’t possible, unfortunately.
I love your blog. Great descriptions and great pictures. I am relocating to Florida from the UK in a few weeks, and was hoping to find stuff to do in nature. This blog has been saved in my favourites to help me with that. Coming from somewhere where nature has been completely tamed, I am unsure about how to stay safe in Florida’s wilderness areas. How does one avoid being eaten by an alligator or bitten by a copperhead while exploring Jonathan Dickinson state park for instance? Would you be able to provide an article about this kind topic?
Thanks so very much for your kind words! I’m thrilled that my little blog will help you in your upcoming move (much luck with that)!
That’s actually a very good idea — how to hike safely in the FLA wilderness! Sadly, developers have been wanton in their destruction of the beautiful, old FLA — politics and money and whatnot. But fortunately we still have much land that’s been SAVED from their destruction.
Till I get around to writing more about it, here’s a few tips. It depends on what area you transfer to — Northern, Central, and Southern FLA have different ecosystems and critters. It’s a huge state! But if you’re in the Southern region, I would suggest some good, waterproof hiking boots — not shoes. I always wore them, regardless of the heat and time of the year. We actually don’t have many poisonous snakes, but lots of non-toxic ones are out there. I’ve been close to being bitten by the harmless ones, because of walking too close to them — a bite is still a bite! And you must have waterproof footwear for our wetter months — lots of impromptu little floods can be on the trails.
Alligators are actually VERY SHY of humans. They get a seriously bad rap by the stupid TV shows out there — idiots baiting them, etc. That being said, I don’t get near them during mating and breeding times. They’re antsy during mating season (understandably), and are VERY good parents. The mothers don’t stray far from, and are very protective of, their babies. Check out some of my images of gator mounds — that’s where the babies would be.
I’ll definitely compile a little post if I think of more info for you, it’s a great idea. But you’ll be great — there’s such a wide variety of beauty to see here. Wetlands, sub-tropical forests, everglades — you’ll love it! Please share your images of your explorations, I’d love to see where you go!
Hi my little Tree Hugger.
R U on Twitter??
Plz come see me if you are?
Hello there! You’re on the TWITTER! 🙂 You know, I even escaped FaceBook, hahah! So I’m not on Twitter, nope. I’m on Instagram, but I’m even lazy with that. I hope you can get some good traction on Twitter, though – I hear it’s decent.
It is fun and quite fast. I like that. have found and enjoyed meeting many new, who like us, love our precious wildlife! I miss your presence so much. You are so very special.
I can imagine that it’s a whole NEW world for people like us! I wish I had the time to investigate it… I know life will calm down for me, but right now I’m doing two jobs (argh! Long days and nights!), and in the process of investigating another home (again!!). So my poor blog is on the backburner — but FAR from forgotten! FAR from it! 🙂
U R missed!
Really do miss you. R U OK??
Hey lady!! I’m so sorry I haven’t been able to post or been as active as I’d like to be… I’m still working quite a bit, making for some *long* days and evenings. 🙂 Also been fighting another nasty months-long infection, which my system seems to enjoy doing every now and then, heh! BUT – I hope you’re doing better??
Your body is going to abandon you for lack of love to it! Take a break and have some fun. You need it and deserve it~
We are all just fine here, except for the freeing cold weather. It was 30 here this morning! Yikes! Be well , be safe~
I hear you!! We’ve been able to get to the mountains for a long weekend here and there, but building a biz… WHOOO boy. We do need to spend more care-time, though. Two Virgos in one place makes it tough, hahah!! 🙂 I’m ready for slightly warmer weather, too. I don’t know how Northerners do it!
Plz take good care of both of you. You are loved! Still in Atlanta??
You’re so sweet! And – DITTO! Yep, still here… And trying to find a place out of the city, closer to NATURE (of COURSE!!)…
Hello, I would like to use one of your images that inspired my artwork and post your picture along side my work to show where I got the inspiration from. I make custom press on nails and your picture inspired the design. The picture I would like to post and credit would be “Namesake Flamingos at Flamingo Gardens in Davie, Florida”.
Hi there! Sure, that would be lovely – I believe there is credit information within the photo proper, so all should be well. Many thanks for your interest in the image! 🙂
