I was excited to see this White-striped Longtail butterfly feeding on Lantana. It seems like a speices you'd only find in the tropics.

This molting male Summer Tanager was whisper-singing and was joined by a female that followed him around quivering her wings similar to begging behavior.

This might be the smallest Green Anole I've ever seen. It must've been newly hatched.

Our target this morning was Great Blue Skimmer, which has been reported from the trail several times but I had never seen. I was excited that we found 4 individuals without even leaving the paved trail.

This is a male.

This is the only female we found. Notice the significantly darker markings on the ends and leading edges of the wings. Is this expected?
