like i said in my previous post, frisky friday...
Back to Nature next time. and that...would...be...now.
i've taken some pretty cool pictures over the past few days.
hang on...let's go for a ride...
this is an Orange Barred Sulpher Butterfly.
(want to learn MORE about butterflies and moths? check out this link!!)
Grasshopper on the front
the Gulf Fritillary Butterfly.
their wings are a beautiful silver on the under side.
this one was across the street...in the field...
Flowers and butterflies drift in color, illuminating spring. ~Author Unknown
i love to read...and learn about all the plants, insects, vertebrates that i see all around me. i found this pretty informative "ID Nature" site the other day
so i thought i'd pass it along...Discover Life.
i also added it to the side bar under "more cool places to check out".
this is the Red-Bellied Woodpecker.
i found this garden site where they have short, easy to understand
descriptions of the EIGHT florida woodpeckers....
along with nice pictures for ID.
Not only must we be good, but we must also be good for something.

The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe,
to match your nature with nature. ~Joseph Campbell
last week...on my way to a client's house...
(i do ALOT of driving. i'm a massage therapist,
and have been making in-home visits for 13 years).
i passed this field of COWS.
it's one of the University of Florida's Agriculture/Beef teaching fields.
"NUMBER 7404 PLEASE STEP UP...FRONT and CENTER!"
and lastly...i caught these two lovebugs with my camera.
as soon as the females emerge...they look for a mate...
attach themselves to each other...
yep - in the mating position...and that's how they stay!
you RARELY see a lone lovebug!
if you don't live in the southeast...then you might not know about these tiny 'nuisance' bugs. the good thing is they don't bite or sting. but they can come in swarms...and when driving...their little squished bodies on the windshield can make it very difficult to see, they can clog the radiator, and due to the acidity of their bodies, they can corrode your car's metal if they're not washed off within a couple of days.
there is/was an Urban Legend...myth...folklore about the LoveBug...
which some people STILL believe...
that lovebugs are synthetic and are the result
of a University of Florida's genetic experiment gone wrong!!
you can read more about this and the lovebug here at wiki...
OR go to the UF extension site here for more lovebug info.
