Description

Seen while completing plant monitoring with Steve Woodmansee in the Hole-in-the-Donut, Restoration Area 2014 in Everglades National Park.

Video showing one of the monitoring plots in Eleocharis marsh: https://youtube.com/shorts/QgdRVJqydPk?feature=share


I worked in the Hole-in-the-Donut on the 27th and 28th and decided to stay in the park overnight so I could blacklight and explore LPK a bit before our second workday.

Came out to try to get some macro video but it was way too shaky. I did take some photos too and the highlight was seeing a honeybee taken by an ambush bug with tons of freeloader flies on it.

Description

Relatively new garden area focused on pine rockland native plants! It is constantly being expanded by the hardworking and nature-conscious folks at Kendall Indian Hammocks! I met Jorge Rodriguez, PROS Stewardship Area Manager, and he told me about the amazing work being done at this fantastic park. Nice meeting you, Jorge!

There was a lot of insect activity here, including dozens of dragonflies nabbing winged ants overhead (didn't get any pics of the dragonflies but there were several species including darners and skimmers). I spent a lot of time looking at the pineland croton flowers, beautyberry, and all of the other plants, trying to get a good snapshot of all the bugs. The milkweed assassin bugs were having a field day eating all kinds of insects. Lots of weevils around along with some tiny wasps that were common on the pineland croton.

All of my observations from this area today: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?nelat=25.693150636744853&nelng=-80.36635107197614&on=2022-08-16&place_id=any&swlat=25.692485955505987&swlng=-80.36890319385381&user_id=joemdo
