I'm still wrapping up a lot of 2012 photos at this point, but that will change soon enough. :)
On my trip to Florida in October, we had a day with no major plans, so I suggested hitting one of the local beaches/parks. It's a place called Stump Pass and it's on Manisota Key near Englewood Florida. It's one of a million such little places in Florida and not particularly known for anything special.
But this is where I had that amazing dolphin pod siting that led to this brief post right when I got back from it.
The small park that we wandered through to get to the end of the key (where we saw the dolphins) contained a fair share of really awesome sightings as well.
Here are the two nifty butterflies I saw that I won't be seeing up in the land of ice and snow (otherwise known as Chicago.)
