Little critters in early spring

It was early March and I was sitting on a bench in the butterfly garden at Folly Farms in Safety Harbor hoping to see hummingbirds (it was probably a little early for them though). No hummingbirds yet but I did see some usual birds. Titmouse are common here and parulas were everywhere in early spring.  Both have distinct calls.

The giant milkweed was full of caterpillars.

Little critters in the garden. The yellow butterfly looks like she was laying eggs.

I’m not sure what this plant is but I’ve seen it at several botanical gardens. It’s really cool and the flowering part is huge.

  1. Hello,
    Lovely series! The Parula is a favorite, so pretty. I love all the butterflies and caterpillars. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a great weekend.

  2. I love your photos. We saw a Monarch Butterfly this week which was a thrill for us. We are seeing lots of others but this was the first Monarch this Spring. Love the Norther Parulas too!
