I can Bear-ly believe It

 Well, I suppose I deserve the reputation of being rather wordy in my Blogs. Fair enough. So I am going to make this one short, and let the pictures do the talking. These photos are of a new development being built on the corner of SR 46 and International Parkway in Seminole County between Lake Mary and Sanford.  This particular lot has always been heavily wooded, and I believe includes some depressional wetlands. The warning sign that this is bear habitat has been there for years--and legitimately so, for this region of Seminole County is known as imporant bear habitat.  There is both an irony and a disturbing reality reflected in these picture. I am not going to editorialize, but rather let you contemplate the messages offered through these images.

Do you sense the irony of this picture? Could it be anymore obvious? 


I bet the Indigo Snakes really appreciate the State having these signs reminding the Contractor of their threatened status.
