For the last few days we have been baiting the Jutías with bananas sneaked out of the restaurant, we figure that all-inclusive covers the wildlife too. Each morning I approach the area quietly at first light and each morning the bananas have gone and there isn't much sign of Jutías. But this morning there was this Yellow-crowned Night Heron stood at the spot with a guilty expression on its face. We'll have to work out a new plan.
We spent the morning in what we call the horse field which is where the golf course used to be before nature took over. With the recent rain there was now a lot more blue porterweed in flower and we had brief views of a Gold-spotted Aguna Aguna asander nectaring but it didn't stay long. There were several newly-emerged Impostor Duskywing Gesta gesta and a Lyside Sulphur Kricogonia lyside which also looked very fresh. We also saw Bahaman Swallowtail Heraclides andraemon and De Villiers' Swallowtail Battus devilliers as well as Cuban Snout Libytheana motya and Miami Blue Cyclargus thomasi.
