The willows are blooming! Golden tipped catkins swarmed by industrious golden honey bees in my favorite willow marsh at Juno Dunes Natural Area, Palm Beach County, Florida on Saturday February

I took this one a few years ago, in all places, at a busy parking lot. There was a retention pond and tons of wildlife settled in it. I found that pretty amazing being all the commercial chaos surrounded this little world. Photo by Leigh Goessl

Closeup of the #monarch #butterfly who came out of its chrysalis this morning. This was the last one we can find. (There are still 5 caterpillars we couldnt find that must have gone into a neighbors yard or are well-hidden in the grass)

One of the latest of our little friends last week taking flight for the first time. When they come out of the chrysalis it seems they are very willing to climb on your fingers, arms, hands and will set for a while before they take off.

Bee buzzing on pink #coneflower. I couldn't believe my luck in spotting this guy, a big storm was just overhead and he was buzzing around frantically as if trying to finish before the skies opened up.

This one was the clearest and I thought it looked like he was dancing. #bees #photography
