Orchid Tree

The Orchid Trees (Bauhinia variegata)
are blooming in Laishley Park, here in Punta Gorda, Florida.

This ornamental is native to northern India, Vietnam and southern China

Considered an Invasive Species, but planted as an ornamental!

While we were phtograping the beautiful blossums, a Loggerhead Shrike was busy
hunting the polinators, mostly wasps.

Lots of nature in the city of Punta Gorda!
