amistadnps As part of a research collaboration with the San Antonio Zoo, University of Texas-Austin, and Zara Environmental, we are surveying for cave-dependent animals including the endangered Mexican blindcat and the invertebrates that it depends on for food. This week we have SCUBA divers helping gather water samples from Goodenough Springs and other sites, which will be tested for the DNA of elusive cave dwellers. The divers are also helping to retrieve sampling nets which are deployed to capture groundwater invertebrates as they get pushed out by the spring water flow. #research #caves #invertebrates #LakeAmistad #AmistadNPS #TexasNPS #NPS

rebeccalatsonphotography Morning's Fires: the brightening fire of the coming sunrise and the fiery glow of the brushfire to the left of the image. I and most of the other early-morning people thought it was a controlled burn (since they'd been doing that at the time) and we couldn't understand why there was no official there watching the fire to make sure it didn't spread. Turned out it was a wildfire caused by a spark from a boat trailer's wheel (or something like that) and quite a few fire trucks were on the scene later that morning). #padreislandnationalseashore #texas #texasnps #nationalseashore #sunrise #fire #fiery #glow #beach #dawn #morning #brushfire #gulfofmexico #rebeccalatsonphotography #spring #april

rebeccalatsonphotography Gliding over the Gulf. #pelicans are so stately when flying (and a little prehistoric- looking as well). They also are great subjects on which to practice one's panning shots. Anyway, I'm all packed and ready for my return trip to #padreislandnationalseashore in #texas to be around a few days to hopefully photograph a Kemp's Ridley #sea #turtle hatchling release and report about it on behalf of the @national_parks_traveler #seashore #bird #birdphotography #rebeccalatsonphotography #canonusa #canon #nps #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #texasnps
