By early September in Florida, humans begin to wilt under the prolonged heat, humidity and rainfall and start thinking about the upcoming fall season. But this is a time of intense animal and plant activity, and it’s also a prime time to enjoy nature. Here is just a small sample from my yard on Manasota Key and the nearby beach of this remarkable natural frenzy.
