Ouch!

5 May

As you drive around Florida this summer you may notice a few yellow flowers off in the pastures. These little cactus plants put out the most flamboyant flower! Get a little closer and you are likely to see some sort of insect taking advantage of the nectar. I’ve even seen a gopher tortoise take a few big bites from the fleshy leaves.
