IMG_20150408_150055It is spring here in Southwest Florida and our gardens are abuzz. Our garden shoppe is growing and many items in our garden shoppe and adjacent butterfly garden attract quite a crowd. Here are a couple of youngsters we found in the garden today. Can you identify them?

    Yes these are larvae of the giant swallowtail, and are now in the pupa stage. It won’t be long now before they are fluttering around!
