I know lantana is not politically correct because it is non-native, but I planted it before I got on my native kick and every afternoon it is covered in butterflies so I'm keeping it.
Great shots, turttle. I've never even heard of an eland.

Squirrels can drive you crazy, but then they entertain.

Great photo! I love my birdseed thieves, too. These guys were on my deck feeder last night. I'm apparently the night care center - mom dropped them off for several hours then came back for them.
