Cedar wax wings visting my fountain! I only seem them when they migrate through each year! I have lots of holly trees with berries and they are eating them up!

A water source it bird bath will bring in so many! Place under/near a tree or shrubs so they are protected.

Bird baths out in the middle of an open lawn get less used. I found out from experience...nobody used when it was out in the open. My neighbor has a big nice one right in the middle of his lawn , only mocking birds use it. So I had him hang a little one under a tree, that one he gets to watch birdies bathe in

@April ...if only I had a camera right?;?!

Yes these are orchids
Red fire star orchids
Or poor man's orchids
They spread fast easy to grow ( at least outdoors in Florida)

The lighting bugs are here!!! If you live in north East Florida or south East Georgia keep your outdoor lights off,! Give them a chance . Light pollution has led to dwindling numbers.

I took a zillion pictures just to catch this one :).

I swear it!
The rest looked like this

Not nearly the same as your glorious moonlight garden.
But maybe just the joy of thinking of lighting bugs

.my blue bird house! A pair i is nesting I'm it! I will get egg pictures later
Several other species of cavity nesters will use, chickadee, tufted titmouse, Carolina wrens, some warblers
It's on a metal pole with carriage bolt. It's a five foot electric conduit pole. Was $10 for the pole $12 for the bird house. I used a metal stovepipe as snake guard less than $10 I'm sure. It's topped with a cut pie e of metal gutter guard. But you can buy a plastic roll of gsuter guard pretty cheap works great .
