Gulfshore Treasures: June 2012




Butterfly Blooms

Butterfly Blooms (Connie Bransilver)

June brings the peak blooming season for butterfly orchids (Encyclia tampensis), which inhabit the hammocks and swamps from the center of Florida south through the Keys. Although deep freezes have hindered the species farther north, Southwest Florida still has a robust population of the delicate, tiny blossoms (which are usually no more than an inch across).

Balancing Act

Balancing Act (Roland Scarpa)

Photography is the art of being at the right place at the right time. That is never so clear as in this portrait of local ballerina Monique Evans by photographer Roland Scarpa. “She could only hold the pose for a couple of seconds,” Scarpa says. So he had to be ready to capture that instant when everything lined up perfectly. To say the shot is on point doesn’t do it justice. rolandscarpa.com
