Visit to the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary

Had the opportunity to gather some more photo reference of Florida wildlife and natural backgrounds on a visit to the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.
Red Shoulder Hawk hunting for mice near the forest ground.
Gator hiding in the vegetation.

Hawk soaring in the sky.
Lettuce Lake near the midpoint of the boardwalk.
Vulture spreading its wings under the rain.
Wasps nest.
Picked a couple of souvenirs from the gift shop: a gator soap and the Twist-Up Crayons set of 8.
The crayon set was made in Korea.Twist-up crayons assembled and taken apart.
Color reference chart on white card stock and quick test doodle. Colors were fairly bright. Twist-up advancing mechanism worked well, and crayon leads simply had to be firmly pushed into the barrel when they came lose.
