You can usually find butterflies here in central Florida all year but in early March the gardens were full of them at the Florida Botanical Gardens. Lots of colors fluttering by.
It was a quiet birding morning. The highlights were a pileated woodpecker across the pond and a cute grebe not acting skittish.
This guy ignored me while he ate his breakfast.
After a walk around the gardens I stopped at the nearby McGough Park to visit the turtles. I thought the ones above were kissing but I think it’s just the angle.
Turtles were everywhere. On the grass and climbing on the rocks.

Butterflies, turtles, and a great shot of the pileated woodpecker!
