Key Lime Harvest September 2016

My little Key Lime tree gave a good harvest this year. It is only about 2 feet tall right now. It gave about 35 nice sized Key Limes. Nice and juicy inside too. For this size tree I am very happy.

Giant Swallowtail Butterfly Caterpillars!



Just posted a New video to YouTube.
I have several stages of the Giant Swallowtail Butterflies Caterpillars on my Calamondin Citrus plant!
They are hungrily eating up the leaves.
Keeping Citrus plants in my home ensures I will see these beautiful Butterflies
flying around my yard. 

Please visit my website page dedicated to the
Giant Swallowtail Butterflies Life Cycle to learn more.

Thank you!

Sorry about the shaky and blurry video! It was really windy and I was having camera issues :)

Lichen or Fungus? Help me ID!


Saw this pretty large beauty on the ground in
Windley Key State Park.
It was about 8 inches across in size
right next to the base of a tree in the shade.

Is this a Fungus or Lichen?

Can anyone help me ID this???

Manduca rustica Sphinx Moth


Found this Rustic Sphinx Moth last night in Miami, Florida. Was just drying its wings hanging from a screen on a window. Must have just crawled out of the cocoon because this one was still in perfect shape.
