It is that time of year again when those of us who migrate southward from our summer homes begin arriving in Southwest Florida.

The transition from northern plants and animals to Florida biota is abrupt and somewhat jarring to the mind. I find it takes a few days for me to readjust my thinking and become adept at recalling names of Florida species. But it is wonderful to escape cold weather and a long period in which northern ecology becomes very quiescent. Now in the fall in Florida we can enjoy seeing a wide variety of animals that may become harder to find once even the mild Florida winter sets in.
