Payne's Prairie Cousins

We've highlighted the bison herd at Florida's Paynes Prairie near Gainsville in the past. But we never had a big bull stop traffic there.

This is what we encountered recently on a trip to South Dakota. This old bull thought he owned the roadway. And for a few minutes, he did!

We think he is a distant cousin of the Florida herd. He'll be in touch over the holidays.

I'm travelling to Mt. Rushmore!

To All,

I've been wanting to go to Mt. Rushmore since I was 9 years old. So I am finally going on my 39th birthday! :-)

So I'll be gone for a few upcoming days.

Will get your orders out when I get back.

Florida's State Butterfly

Most Florida residents don't know their state symbols, so we thought we would start to present them on this Blog.

The zebra longwing became the state butterfly in 1996. It is common in South Florida, especially in the Everglades National Park. However, it is not common in North Florida. This black and yellow butterfly is known for dining on the sweet nectar of passion flowers.
