We didn’t venture very far today but there is plenty of wildlife in the grounds of our accommodation in Bambarra. Everywhere you go rustling in the leaves indicates the presence of a curly tail lizard or the smaller bark anole (another lizard). Butterflies are all over but they rarely sit still. There are striking species such as the gulf fritillary or the Bahaman swallowtail as well as an array of tiny skippers or whites.
There are a wide range of plants in the grounds, some planted here as part of an educational project using the land at what was designed as a conservation /information centre. Other plants are in the native bush around the edges of the plot. Striking and colourful flowers such as wild potato and yellow elder (not an elder) and tinier but ubiquitous plants such as blue rat tail surround us.
