Old Enough to Help Decorate the Tree This Year.

The unidentified flower that I posted pictures of a couple of days ago is unidentified no longer. It's a Golden Chalice vine Solandra maxima and isn't a tree or shrub at all. It must be very old to have branches as thick as it does.

Huge Unidentified Flower.

This bud and flower are leathery and huge! I have not been able to identifiy the tree yet, so if anyone knows what it is, please let me know.

Orchard Swallowtail.

This female Orchard Swallowtail butterfly is a long way from her normal home range well to the north of us. She is resting on the leaves of a variety of Oak, however these butterflies lay their eggs on citrus plants. I wonder why she is so far from home.
