The squirrels were getting frisky in late May at the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo.
Not many birds at the gardens. A pileated woodpecker and a young moorhen.
Grasshoppers are everywhere right now. They can wipe out a plant in no time. You can see them eating the leaves in both of these shots.
It was a quiet morning at the gardens but I wasn’t quite ready to go home yet so I went for a quick walk at nearby McGough Park and to visit the turtles there. Most of the trails here are very narrow so I stayed off those to keep away from having to pass people. I probably won’t make it back to this park until next spring.
