Only sad that I didn't manage to get a top view shot of the open wings!
Ha ha ha. Yes, occasional mermaid, dancer, but mostly just a nature girl.If you go to Duette - please make sure you go on a weekend that is *not* a Hunt weekend. If you go on a Saturday, the gates will be open and you can drive through. Otherwise you can hike or bike in. Hunt weekends are the only time we're not open.

Thanks! Another place for a weekend foray. I see you're a mermaid...never met one before!
Hi Ceherzog,It *is* nice to see a fellow Sarasotian! This shot was indeed taken near Duette Road. Manatee County manages Duette Preserve right there - over 20,000 acres of conservation land. June-October are some of the best months to see the butterflies out there.
Hi Marsha,Where exactly did you see this...looks like somewhere near Duette Rd. Welcome to Project Noah...good to have another from Sarasota.
