I first noticed the dogface butterfly struggle from a distance, thinking it’s windy and it’s just trying to get some type of stability to gather nectar from the flower.
Sadly and a part of nature, it was ambushed by this Jagged Ambush Bug.
The Jagged Ambush has a very unique body shape and color tones, which gives it the ability to blend with different shapes of flowers.
Saturday, April 27th is ‘Go Birding Day’
Saturday in Florida is going to be a beautiful and a great time to explore the trails and seek out these beautiful winged creatures.

Have a great weekend!
Earth Day is not just about taking action to protect the earth, it’s also about protecting the species that live in it and why we need to protect them.
Florida Panthers to Trees to Bees to Sea Turtles…

This is actually an orchid and a very unique one as well.
According to the Florida Native Orchid website, it has a very interesting way not to self-pollinate.
This orchid is amazing, how it naturally twists for growth and strength but stays so very fragile.
This is a native wildflower I haven’t seen at Chassahowitzka WMA before, as it was in a location many just look and drive by.
They are well hidden in this field of Bracken Fern, along with a couple of other wildflowers.
The stalks of the Pinebarren Aster, also known as Whitetop Aster, have multiple groups of flowers which make for a great photo subject.
Was not a good morning for this little butterfly. It happened to perfect conditions for the morning dew to form on just about anything.
