Earlier this week, a friend of mine and I took a trip to the Everglades National Park in South Florida. With Hurricane Michael already churning northward along the west coast of Florida, sunlight was nowhere to be found! But there’s a silver lining around every cloud if we just look for it, and this sunless day was no exception! The clouds kept the heat in check and the storm off the coast provided us with a breeze throughout the day. Even the wildlife seemed to appreciate the cooler temperatures, as well, providing us with many opportunities to get some really nice photos.
Many of the Everglade’s water lilies, wild flowers, orchids, etc., are in bloom this time of year. One such plant (pictured above) caught my eye. Something I hadn’t noticed when I took this picture was the little green insect that was busy at work pollinating the flowers along one of the Everglade’s many canals. It wasn’t until I loaded the picture into my laptop that I discovered this little guy “Taking Care of Business”! Hope you enjoy!
