At first I was wondering how you had so much in bloom this time of year, then I noticed ( and remembered) you are in Kissimmee, Florida. That explains a lot.

By the way, I don't even where long johns most winters...if any, but if you get up to PA to see the spring ephemerals and have to wear them, I won't say a thing. I guess it is all what you are used to...and remember the body adapts.

Thanks Turtle, with the cooler weather they make easy pickings for morning shots.

Thanks Dap,yes the garden is still going strong and likely will until the first hard frost. My blood has thinned quite a bit in my old age, 55 degrees this morning sent chills up my spine.

I hadn't quite thought of that...good tip.

I've been going out when it is sunny and warmer as that is when I see the activity...when it is colder, I rarely see anything except, perhaps, a sluggish bumblebee clinging to the underside of a flower. I'll have to learn to time things just right.

Cool...you can really enjoy (what I consider) an extended bloom time.

Trust me, the flowers are worth a chilled spine. ...and if you are walking the trail that will warm you up some too. Try for a day that is in the 60s.

Dap, I do a walk in the evenings to get an Idea where they are roosting. In the morning they will be in the same general area. Many butterflies come back to the same spot to roost nightly. For instance my hairstreaks roost in the bamboo every night, yes I have some from a rookie mistake years ago, but it is actually used by many butterflies for shelter.In the evenings you can see dozens fluttering around it jockeying for the best spots.

Congrats on your upload!

The wind in the leaves almost seem to have been made by an artist's brushstroke.
