We took a stroll around My Florida Backyard after a sudden summer shower this evening, noting what's growing well and what needs some work. We encountered many tiny creatures along the way (not all of which were trying to suck our blood). Here's a sampling...
A Gulf Fritillary caterpillar on the tendrils of the passion vine:
A Milkweed Assassin bug, one of the many pests eating my caterpillars:
An Orchard Orbweaver spider on the beautyberry bush:
As always, we're amazed by the amount of life, big and small, that thrives in our tiny piece of suburbia!
