Saw Palmettos in Glorious Flower

This blog contains images of nature found in a wonderful part of the Savannas State Preserve known as the Halpatiokee Nature Trails.  I hope that my images show some of the wonders of nature and will entice people to visit the Trail.

Saw Palmettos abound along the Trail.  I love the twists and turns of the stems as they begin their flowering stage.

And soon the flowers begin to appear.

And then the fun begins as they are visited with all manner of insects.  Wasps come to feast.

A beetle appears and joins in.

Bees are there in force.

And are then joined by a pair of love bugs.

It is like having a 3-ring circus right before your eyes.
