Many of you have asked when we would post some of our flora and fauna photos again.
This season there are a noticeably lower number of birds and butterflies.
The White- tipped Pixie butterfly (sometimes called the white-rayed Pixie) was photographed on our walk up to Oceano Atlantico. Can anyone identify the flower (or weed) the butterfly is feeding on?
The Red-bordered Pixie butterfly was seen in the valley.
The Malachite Butterfly posed for us on our walk up to Oceano Atlantico.
The Yellow-crowned Night Heron is always a photogenic species.
The Golden-cheeked Woodpecker is a regular visitor to our courtyard feeders.
The vibrant blossoms of the African tulip tree (also known as the Flame Tree) are just coming into bloom and are the Streak-backed Orioles source of nectar-their morning “java.”
This Clavellina tree (nicknamed Shaving brush tree for obvious reasons) was flowering. The white Shaving brush tree blossoms are less common.
