I found the chrysalis of the missing Giant Swallowtail caterpillar. Mother Nature does her work well…Rich thought this was a twig at first!
One of the two caterpillars continues to feast on the leaves of our little citrus tree. He’s almost doubled in size. We hope his brother is happily transformed into a butterfly somewhere…preferably in cat-eye range around the porch!
When I was a kid visiting my grandparents in Juno Beach, we’d often go over to Loggerhead Park, the “Turtle Museum” across the street from my grandparents’ condo. So when I married a turtle freak, I told him all about the museum. We finally got to visit and Rich had a great time looking at all the turtles. A whole place dedicated to his favorite animal!
This is Jonah. He is a loggerhead turtle rescued by Loggerhead Park. He is being rehabilitated and then will be released back into the wild.
There was a tank of baby turtles, which had just hatched this morning. They were so cute! Some were already covered in algae.
