After a thorough soaking last night, I stepped out into the back yard this morning
to find a feeding frenzy. I haven't see this much activity all summer.
Green bees, Miner bees everywhere. The Green bees jump on each other,
I don't know if they are mating or fighting, but check out the two shots below.
If you want to see more Miner Bees, above, check out this video.
Gulf Fritillarys, below, made their return after being absent most of the summer.
Mrs. Getawaymoments, captured an excellent shot of a Mud Dauber below.
The sight of these guys give me chills, creepy.
Today's big surprise, the arrival of our first documented visit by Florida's
own state butterfly, the Zebra Longwing.
I found them hard to photograph, they are not fast but they are constantly
on the move. If you don't have some butterfly/bee friendly plants in your
yard, you should pant some you will not be disappointed.
