Butterflies, Flowers, Birds, and Reptiles

Butterfly in our backyard. I think it is a Gulf Fritillary. If you know something about butterflies and think it is something else, please comment below. Photo by Regis

Yep, that’s a boring title but I don’t know what to say since we have quite a variety over the last two days. It’s a good thing we have two cameras since Regis went his way and I went mine.

Regis took some pictures of the backyard activity while I went to the Alligator Farm with some friends. I love the Alligator Farm. There are LOTS of nesting birds, flowers, and other things to see.

An albino alligator at the Alligator Farm. These guys are very hard to photograph well because they are in the shade while they are white. Of all the times I have tried to take a picture, this is the best I’ve done.
Galapagos Tortoise at the Alligator Farm in St. Augustine, Florida. Usually, they are sleeping and mostly tucked into their shells when I visit. I was excited to capture one with his head up.
One of the many baby birds at the Alligator Farm. This is a baby Tri-colored Heron. They often nest in the boots on the palm trees.

The female Bluebird poking her head out of the nest box in our backyard. She is sitting on four eggs. I can’t wait to see the chicks hatch. Photo by Regis
