What's not to love about the brilliant Red Cardinal!

A Great Blue Heron beautifully framed.

Not too far away we witnessed a pair of Bald Eagles getting their nest in shipshape condition for the upcoming season.

with a very debonair white mustache under its nose.

The Loggerhead Shrike are back in sight!

A walk through the Fragrance Garden gave us opportunity to enjoy and admire this Monarch Caterpillar, had I been quick enough we would also have a Monarch Butterfly photo to go with this.

An eye candy of a bloom from the....

Also, the Dwarf Royal Poinciana....check the bloom out....
