The Turtles and Tiger Swallowtails of Rocks Springs Apopka, FL

Ross and Laura from the UK joined us today on Rock Springs Run. Gorgeous weather and clear water made for an ideal kayak trip. Down stream we drifted past White Ibis, Limpkins, Great Blue Heron, white Spider Lily, red Cardinal Flower and purple Pickerel Weed. There must have been a dozen Tiger Swallowtail Butterflies all in this one area of Pickerel Weed. There were many Turtles out Red-bellied and Yellow River Cooters and a few small Gators as well. Back upstream we stopped at the rope swing for a few refreshing dips in the river. What a wonderful day!
