"The entry attached has won our REPTILE category! This is a beautiful photo, and we are thrilled you chose to share it with us!"
- Carolina Montano, Director of Outreach and Volunteer Services
It was an honor to submit an entry for the South Florida Wildlife Center's photography contest earlier this year. I've had the privilege to visit the center and see the care and healing they provide for injured wildlife throughout the greater South Florida area. Once my neighbor recovered a young chick that fell out of its nest and took it to the center.
About the photo: Mother Alligator with her young hatchling stretched out across her head. For me it's a reflection of motherhood, only in an animal species many fear. Symbolically this image represents a mother's nature to support, protect and, literally, uplift their young giving them the best opportunity to survive and hopefully thrive.
