Florida Winter Butterflies

Most people are living in an icy winter wonderland, where no butterflies would dare to fly. But down in Florida, it stays warm enough that quite a few species are able to survive the winter. When I was down in Florida for the past 12 days I was able to find quite a few species. Most people know I love birds, but I also really enjoy finding and photographing butterflies. The following are a few species I saw during my trip.

Zebra Longwing – Florida’s State Butterfly; I have seen this species on other trips to Florida, but this trip was my first chance to actually photograph it.

White Peacock Butterfly – One of my favorite species in North America!
