“Early on the morning of March 23, 2016, while searching for wildlife in the Big Cypress National Preserve and surrounding areas with Captain Franklin Adams (FWF Board of Directors) and my research colleague, Dr. Forest Redding, Jr. (a former Fulbright Senior Research Scholar), quite an extraordinary experience occurred when we encountered a wild Florida Panther!! Although I have spent many years exploring Florida's pristine wilderness areas, I never thought seeing a panther in the wild would happen in my lifetime.

As the full-grown animal bounded right past us and then slowed down before reentering the swamp, I was able to take sixty-two consecutive photographs. The acrylic painting (featured above) began to take shape while I was still feeling the adrenaline from this overwhelming wildlife experience. I think this new painting captures the essence of a Florida panther running freely into the warm embrace of the rising sun.” - Peter R. Gerbert


Based on an actual encounter with a wild Florida Panther and the pictures I got of the animal as it ran right past us! -Peter R. Gerbert
