I'm a nature lover, but STOMP EM!

No, haven't tried grasshoppers or crickets yet, but would go with other varieties.

Kid found this munching on fallen papaya, and hiding in firebush. "They're sooo cute." Cute demon. Nipples too, so must have babies around.

saw a pair of swallow-tailed kites flying around the other day, it's very unusual to see these graceful birds here this time of year; they're migratory for Florida and don't stay longer than Feb-March. They were hiding under the flower pods of a royal palm, scanning the grounds every now and again. So beautiful and special on the wing, you cannot mix them up with any other bird because of the swallowtail and white underbelly.

 Cardinal nest in guava tree. I thought the baby birds died as they vanished from the nest so fast, but I read that they leave the nest only 9-11 days after hatching! Talk about a speedrun!
